Has treating the documentation like the library been considered?  That
is, instead of linking to Doug's examples, assuming Doug consented,
incorporate them directly into the doc, and give Doug a commit bit so
he can maintain them. That would also solve the versioning issues, at
least to the level of "which version is the example for." Done right,
the examples should be automatically testable.
