OK, but as I keep saying, that only covers half of the problem.

I have no idea, but there are already quite a lot of z3 interfaces
in zope 2.9.

ok... but as I said, I'm also wondering if help stx files should go
in some parallel tree and not be mixed up with API docs at all.
But maybe we could still leverage Apidoc for this tree somehow?
I'm totally hand-waving here...

just to be clear, the stuff I'm talking about is ZMI user interface 
docs, not programmer docs.
