Well, the API reference documentation is mostly already using gtk-doc,
which is sane and ready for use by library.gnome.org, so that would
already partly solve the problem of different versions of the same
documentation jumping around different URL pattersn.

And once you have that working, I think it might be more persuasive than
any attempt to explain why a sane process would be sane. Momentum seems
to be the problem here so it might help to have some momentum in a
sensible direction.
