    But "make bootstrap" also deletes all the emacs-nnn executables,
    doesn't it?  If so, there's no point in keeping their DOC files.

Yes there is.  I had a job running, and it could not get its DOC file.

However, it is a bad thing to delete the old executables too.
It is sometimes useful to compare behavior of the new version
with the old version.  There is no need to delete them,
so let the user decide.
