gnu-web-doc-update and versioned manuals

Having just released m4-1.4.14, I noticed that gnu-web-doc-update is
currently hardcoded to put the updated manual directly in $pkg/manual.
But it seems like it might be nicer to support versioned manuals: both m4
and autoconf copy the new manual into $pkg/manual/$pkg-$ver, then update
$pkg/manual/.symlinks to redirect $pkg/manual/xyz to
$pkg/manual/$pkg-$ver/xyz, so that the latest version of the manual
appears at the usual locations but older versions are still accessible
from their longer URL.  Any suggestions for a command-line interface that
let gnu-web-doc-update should support this mode of operation?

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
