  The Doc/ stuff is already in a separate distribution; this has been
in place for about a year (if I recall correctly).  I try to make doc
releases shortly after Python releases (I think the 1.5.2 doc release
is the longest I've waited past the Python release so far, and it may
end up being next week), and I have made interim releases as the
documentation has grown.
  I certainly think that doing something similar for the Demo/ and
Tools/ directories would be reasonable; they could share a single
distribution.
