My rationale was that monodoc.xml would define the skeleton, and various
different providers would attach there.  So for example, Gekkota should
probably be on "Third Party software" node or something.

Monodoc is on its early days, and today class libraries are at the top,
but they will eventually move to Monodoc/Reference/Class Libraries, or
we might find a different organization.

If we allow people to choose new paths to install their stuff at, then
we cant keep Monodoc's tree clean, nor can we reorganize it without
talking to all the providers.

So the best thing to do here is find an appropriate name, register that
with us, and then use that pathname.

That works.
