Hi Miguel

For the core and mayor mono projects the method of asking request for a
node and/or hierarchy is enough, but for like I said third party
proyects or homemade it isn't enough.

I think one way to maintain order and coherence is to have a base
hierarchy (thinking like a gnome-menu type) where the various node is
splitted to several nodes like: GUI API, Multimedia API, etc then you
add the documentation to the right node. Flexibility and order ;).

Right now adding new documentation is a chore, assemble the file then
modifying some obscure files to have monodoc show your work I think it
coul be easier, many times I see in the lists how to make docs and how
to install them in monodoc.
