I think you're completely forgetting the newbies.  If the project
actually went the route you suggest and used _me_ as a measuring stick,
it could be printed on a single sheet of 8x11" paper, and be entirely
useless to newbies.  I like the file listings, and they should only be a
problem for people stubbornly reading the thing as one big long
textfile.  Build yourself a copy of lynx for pete's sake--even a
_printed_ book makes it easier to skip to the top of the next section
than having it as one giant continuous spool.
