Ideally, I would really like to see the developer docs live outside the
CPython source repository.  There's no reason to tie the dev docs to CPython's
svn merge policies, write acls, or release schedules.  Given the way
docs.python.org is stitched together, and the fact that we (still ;) haven't
moved to a dvcs, this may not be feasible.

These docs are better off in the wiki than in the source tree.
