Actually, AFAIK they were already out of sync from the start, because 
the doc/ dir stuff was based on an older README version.

I wonder if the doc/ dir is good for anything at this point. In 
particular, I am curious how we are supposed to create a useful HTML 
version from it, and more importantly, a *text* version... (the primary 
reason LaTeX was not on my list of suggestions for a doc format is that 
it sucks when it comes to outputting pure text. But I hope that's just 
because I don't know something about LaTeX which you guys know)...

Go ahead and do it.
