Would Stephan's suggestion to create a modules/trunk-docs folder address
this concern for you?  I could imagine a trunk-docs folder containing a
folder with documentation for each component, and then those documentation
files being copied to the appropriate component's doc folder prior to

I'm not sure how elegant you'll see this as a solution, but having a central
repository would make things easier for documentors to access and work on,
and keeping the documentation folders within each component's SVN folder
would maintain the modularity of the components.

Let me know if you think that this would be a workable approach, or if you
have any problems with this.  Thanks,
