That would be wonderful. But I was thinking on something like texhash
where the dvi/pdf/dtx files can be indexed and retrieved for later use.

On the same lines, on TeXLive, sometimes the packages with full sources
are there and documentation has to be generated. Can a uniform policy to
include documentation for all packages be followed? This would greatly
help when one notices a package and wants to read about it.

Just my thoughts.
