Ugh. I certainly dont' want to do this for the xembed and xsettings
specs, where the spec is maintained in a module along with sample
code, etc. I don't think it really makes sense in general .. the
web module is just going to get bigger and bigger and more

Also, any reorganization of the web site that moves a spec from one
place to another will lose history without manual intervention on
the CVS server.
