Just out of curiosity, really?

I mean, I can't see that building a PDF of the documentation really
has much value, and I don't know even what else we can build.  Who in
2015 would use a PDF instead of HTML?

(If there is somebody, that is fine.  But I am curious who it is and
why, because it seems to me like it would just be a nuisance.)
