This script works with the current docs as well.  But including it in
the windows installer instead of the 1250 html pages will raise the size
by ~200 kB (probably the full text index), but worse, pydoc expects the
normal html pages.

hh.exe can decompile the chm file, but is it a good idea to do this
during (or after) installation?
