I've been doing a pile of docs in asciidoc  these days; it generates
html quite easily, and if you're cautious, the source can remain
readable. I can convert the current page (which is in ikiwiki) into
asciidoc and stick that into the calypso repo itself. From there, it
could be used to populate a web page that other people have access
to. I'd then set up a redirect from my server once it's ready.

This seems necessary; I've found a few things lacking in python-vobject
which have made calypso fail from time to time.

I think the only remaining issue is how to manage releases; I'm afraid I
don't have the time to deal with that myself.
