This does *not* make sense.

And where's the problem? Why are we talking about 15 seconds worth of
work in lengths? You'll get exactly that, right away. Check out CVS, run, configure and make; it will create one directory structure
for German and one for English.

What the mapping looks like! You keep insisting that it's deadly trivial
though you simply cannot come up with something like an example and even
ask *me* to provide one. Sorry Sven, this is really insane!

Exactly, why are you bothering me with an example?

For you (again) in plain English: I dislike the idea of using HTML
accessed from some helpbrowser using a mapping.

And here's why: I don't know how you want to control the granularity of
the generated HTML files; you'll get lengthy and supershort files which
will make browsing the help real fun.

Great, sounds like plan that finally might work.
