 Replying to [comment:3 hinder]:
 > If we do that, then we don't have any thorn documentation available on
 the ET web page, which is bad.  I don't think we should remove the thorn
 guide until we have a replacement.  I think all that is needed is a page
 which indexes the thorndoc.  This should be created as part of the
 ThornDoc make target.

 If we do that, then we end up with the same situation as we are currently
 in: wrongly indexed documentation on the ET webpage. My understanding was
 that the ThornGuide was a dead end (correct me if I'm wrong) so I was
 suggesting removing the ThornGuide make target and focusing on a better
 solution such as creating an index of the ThornDoc. In fact, even just
 replacing the HTML ThornGuide with ThornDoc and relying on the web server
 to produce an index would be an improvement. For example, see
 http://www.barrywardell.net/files/ThornDoc/ which just uses
 "DirectoryIndex documentation.html index.html index.php" in the .htaccess
 file and the following trivial php script in the base directory:

 $thorns = glob("*/*");

 foreach($thorns as $thorn)
 echo "<a href=$thorn>$thorn</a><br />";

 This could obviously be made prettier with some basic CSS and improvements
 to the PHP script.
