I prefer docs. It seems more natural.

I see that distutils2 promotes storing documentation in docs/
directory while Python sources use Doc/
I'd like to see this changed before distutils2 is released beta.

In my projects checkouts there are 80 project that use doc/
directories. Among these are:
- subversion
- hg
- sphinx
- trac
- scons
- twisted

docs/ directory is used by 61 project, the most famous are:
- xalan
- fop
- moinmoin
- cmd2
- googlecl

There are some arguments for 'doc/':
1. there is no plural for 'documentation'
2. bin/ is a common name for storing executables, although there is
plural for 'binary'
3. we still use src/ instead of sources/

Any thoughts/objections?
