edoc - how to set up links?

I've attached a diff for edoc_lib.erl that at 
least finds the OTP documentation using the 
code path. Don't know what to do about the /
in the relative part, though.

It should be backward compatible. I added the 
option 'ref_any_html' (default 'false'). 
I'm not particularly proud of the name.
It finds the OTP html pages, but doesn't jump
to the right function.

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.)
