  okay, lot of this makes sense. The only drawback seems to be loosing
the ability to use wildcards to list for example the HTML pages or
C examples ...
  BTW, have you noticed that docs/examples/Makefile.am is automatically
generated, so for that part you will instead need to fix index.py which
does the indexing/generation.

   okay in principle but the docs/examples/Makefile.am change need to be
fixed differently.
