But you don't claim that the listing at

has any additional content whatsoever, do you?

Possibly, although I found it way too long.  There were other,
maintainance related reasons for the change too.  But the look can always
be changed.

True, but that is not a fault of the new vs. the old docs.  And it can be
fixed.  If you can give me some sort of include files to stick at the top
and bottom of each page, we can have the web site docs have the same side
bar and colors and everything.
