Perhaps some scheme of mapping between document foo and its prefix.
So for instance different manuals can be taken from different sites,
like gcc from http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc, versus glibc from

Yes, it's a bit like hard work.  I put in a few hoping the next update
would see them using makeinfo instead of texi2html.

Yes that'd help maintainers, though they'd be smart enough to munch
with sed to amend the current output.

I wonder if all that's needed is more notes in the manual about how to
integrate a collection of html manuals.  A few more words at the end
of the "makeinfo html" node explaining how to sed for `href="foo' to
reference external sites.  Perhaps break that paragraph out as
something more visible.  Hmm.
