that is great, thanks for explaining.

The "file://" interface, once it is working (transparently) in
other systems too, might be a better choice as the default way to
access the documentation, than localhost "http://".  One drawback
of "file://":  there would have to be a single directory subtree
shared by .pd, .html, and all other kinds of files.  Pddpserver
allows to keep them arbitrarily separate.

Anyway, the pddpserver, after being extended with cgi handling,
could then stay as a user-requested option, providing full access
with queries, etc.
