That's exactly what I meant by "pre-built by upstream". We currently
*do* have separate HTML doc packages, built for each release; cf. 

In the future, we can ship the HTML doc packages in the same place as
the source packages, so that they are easier to discover.


@Ralf or someone else with sourceforge permissions: would you mind


as numpy-doc-1.5.1.zip (or .tar.gz) on sourceforge?
