LuaRocks 0.6 brings some improvements in this regard. Now, the 'doc/'
subdirectory of source tarballs is automatically copied to a rock,
meaning that many rockspecs which didn't install any documentation now
do. The idea of building a documentation index is interesting; it's
probably the best we can do, really, in terms of user interface, since
there is no unified format that's followed by all packages.
