I save the output and do a diff ... not the greatest workflow.

The docs-build warnings are a huge problem, which is why getting rid of
them is at the top of my priority list. It's a fairly lonely game of
whack-a-mole at the moment, though.

Once we're there, it should be pretty easy to add a quick check that
doesn't actually build the docs and, thus, isn't so painfully slow. But
that won't really be useful until we can get the build clean.
