 It is to make the build process less complex actually.  Currently the
 www and doc trees have own build infrastructure but most of the parts
 are duplicated.  Also, this fact makes reuse of information in
 doc/share and www/share such as the mirror site list unnecessarily
 complex.  The www/<lang> -> doc/<lang>/htdocs change will clear up
 the duplicated information and Makefiles.

 The build results will not change basically.
