no - I just included the rdoc to show where the previous directory

This is so that you can install point releases of Ruby without 
overwriting documentation installed by the local users. The standard 
distribution loads documentation for internals andthings in lib/ and 
ext/. If you download (say) DBI and ask to install its documentation 
globally, it'll go into site/
