Rather than archive documentation, why not use a simple static page that
points to the different sections for each version of Python on The 2.7.3 documentation is mostly useless to me since
I'm using 3.3 (and of course there are some using 2.6 or 3.2 or 3.1...),
but I can easily access it from a link in the page you've archived. Not
only would this reduce the size of the plugin to almost nothing, but it
would prevent the documentation from being outdated.

Why isn't it installed like other Eclipse plugins? Is it even possible
to update the plugin via Eclipse?

This does look like a very useful plugin, though. Great idea.
