If some kind of automation were possible, and the job was distributed
over several people, it might be possible. A single person would need
six week full time, and would be ready for the mad house afterwards.

As long as we can make the docs readable on other platforms, I see no
immediate need. Yet if some kind of automated pre-conversion is possible
for redoing the docs, then maybe it can be considered in the future. At
the moment, I just want to have what I have done so far as error free as
possilbe for 3.3
