This should not be needed, the doc- is a shared prefix that will
be stripped during installations, as it is not needed.  Whether it
is good to strip it, i do not know.  I do not like it.  Namespaces
would be much cooler, like being able to say "use namespace doc",
but i cannot help it, at least not for the forseeable future.
I am confident Ingo tested 1.22.4.

Out of interest, who needs this doc- prefix, actually?
