Really great idea. :) Thanks for the initial patch!

To make the Suggests a reality, I think it would be better to only
display “By default, a symlink…” if the file is already present on the
filesystem. Otherwise, if `--html-dir` is specified, the software should
exit with an error, asking users to specify `--jquery`.

Related question: is the browser going to visit the subpage if I have
JavaScript disabled? In that case, one other option is to only add the
JavaScript code when we have access to jQuery. I know some people don't
want JavaScript in their browser, so specifying something like
`--no-jquery` or `--jquery=none` could also be a way to turn it off.

Maybe it would be nicer to write:

    if not any(parsed_args.text_output, parsed_args.html_output, 
parsed_args.html_output_directory):

I'm not entirely sure the anchor as it's working right now will be
unique…

So I think it would be great to crash here instead of overwrite if the file
aleardy exists. What do you think?
