Me too, but the mapping is not so simple. E.g., the current URL for
the lists:zip/2 function is:
  http://erlang.se/doc/doc-5.4.8/lib/stdlib-1.13.8/doc/html/lists.html#zip/2

Maybe OTP can be persuaded to set up some links in the tree, so that at
least http://erlang.se/doc/doc/lib/stdlib/doc/html/lists.html#zip/2 always
works regardless of the current version?

(By the way, I'm not sure it's a great idea to use / in the last fragment.)
