Hi gang.

The dodoc command in ebuilds should handle HTML files a lot better than it does now. Instead of naively compressing html files, they should be put /usr/share/doc/${P}/html instead.

This would be a very simple fix, if it wasn't for the fact that we sometimes want to copy entire HTML-trees with image files and all (such as the documentation for python or qt).

However, the first step in the right direction is to not compress the html files, since the browsers do not understand html.gz.
