Now that's an interesting idea; I hadn't thought about that. Doing so,
though, implies a willingness to stage unloved docs *out*, and my
experience is that there is little appetite for that. It also kind of
implies moving docs twice - at least for the ones that get updates - and
that may not be entirely appreciated.

So I don't have any hard numbers, but my feeling is that this work is
continuing apace and perhaps even picking up. Certainly I'm having a
harder time keeping up with it, even when you're busy with other things :)
These things take time; I'm not really ready to give up on it yet.
