That would be fine, except that I already have a functional apache
mirror on my laptop. Two of them, actually, since I have the 1.3 and
2.0 docs on my laptop via cvs checkouts. I realize that I only have
the documentation, but what else would I really need?

That's the way that it already is. Well, almost. They are links to
docs/ and docs-2.0/ so that you can have an Apache site mirror as part
of your website, and not necessarily as a separate vhost. For example,
I had my mirror for a long time at
http://apache.rcbowen.com/mirror/apachesite or something like that,
and the links to docs/ still worked, whereas a link to /docs would
presume that this was a separate vhost for the mirror.

I guess I'm unclear what problem you are trying to solve.
