Which is a gigantic mess, all files in one directory. That's why these
dbhtml directives are here in the first place, to keep them separated by

If you remove dbhtml that's fine, as long as the files stay named the
same and end up in the same directory as they are now.

This isn't just about my potential bookmarks (I don't even use bookmarks
myself) but of the community at large. There is no reason to make this
kind of change IMO, everything in one directory. I find it too messy to
be acceptable.
