edoc custom layout

Richard,

While I was writing a custom layout for edoc I ran into the following 
concern.  Current edoc's implementation of layouts excludes 
customization of the modules/packages frames of the generated menu and 
the index file.  It seems to me that it would be a worthy modification 
in edoc to force the edoc_doclet:application_frame/3, 
edoc_doclet:modules_frame/4, edoc_doclet:packages_frame/4, and 
edoc_doclet:index_file/3 to follow the same approach as done in 
edoc_doclet:overview/4 call of invoking the layout's callback that may 
customize the look of navigation frames.

I've done this modification (patch included) that allowed me to generate 
an XML layout in the format suitable for the forrest.appache.org's 
project.  The absense of custom callback functions will default to the 
edoc's current layout method.

Do you think it would be possible to include this patch in the 
distribution?

Regards,

Serge
