[Mono-docs-list] monodoc split

Hello all,

At the risk of being rejected, I would like to propose that monodoc be
split into at least two seperate packages. I know this has been
discussed before, but I don't recall anyone ever formally asking. 
This is primarily for the following reasons:
- So Gtk# can depend on monodoc-common to conditionally build and install its
docs while avoiding the circular dependencies.  This will allow those
building from cvs or newer Gtk# tarballs to get those docs installed
automatically, and uncouples the two packages.
- The doc build has grown to taken a substantially large time, so that
  building monodoc from a tarball or cvs sucks (at least for me).

So my request is (name however you want):
monodoc-common - contains the docs, tools, monodoc.dll, mod, the monodoc pc file
monodoc - contains the Gtk# frontend (and the web stuff if you want)

I volunteer to do this if it is a time constraint for you to do so.
