The main reason for not having a TOC like that is because it would be
a lot of duplicate content that should be in a MogileFS-Manual
distribution (IMO).  I tend to draw more of a mental line between a
manual and a wiki, but that may be less of an issue since the Mogile
wiki isn't an open system and the wiki then can be the manual.

If that's the direction you guys think is best, I'm fine with it.
