I think the idea was to take the RTF file and split it at the boundaries.  
If I remember right then you already tried that and considered in
workable.

Otherwise this whole change would have been pointless because now the
integrated doc looks exactly like the individual ones only with an extra
title page.  Then we might as well get rid of that, but I think the intent
was to make them all into one set to enable cross-links.  I can't find the
original discussion right now (no archives of pgsql-docs available?) but I
thought that was the plan.
