If you want to do this reorganization, fine, but it seems like it'll
be a long way off.  Why not just put them in nondist/doc/howto?
(Other documentation could be put in nondist/doc -- I could even dig
out the grimoire and add it, if someone would be interested in
updating and maintaining it.)

On the other hand, the documentation maintainers might be a different
set of people from code maintainers, and we might not want them
checking in code changes, so having the docs as a completely separate
project would allow finer control of this.  On the third hand, we do
have the python-checkins list to keep an eye on what's happening. 

I'd vote for nondist/doc/howto.
