Why do we ship the 'www' directory?

In testing 1.4.3 this past week, I noticed that we include the 'www'
directory in our tarball. This directory is 3.4MB (including a 1.37 MB
cvs changelog file) and serves little or no purpose to the end user.
Out of curiosity, I removed the 'www' directory, and recompressed the
tarball with the following results:

File Size (bytes)
subversion-1.4.3.tar.bz2: 4721031
subversion-1.4.3-no-www.tar.bz2: 3842726
subversion-1.4.3.tar.gz: 6303068
subversion-1.4.3-no-www.tar.gz: 5328099

For those keeping score at home, that's 15.6% smaller for the .gz file
and 18.6% for the .bz2 file, a marked difference. I did not examine the
zip file, but believe the difference would be similar.

So, my question is this: why do we ship the 'www' directory? Would it
be possible to yank it for the next release? Are there people who
actually use the 'www' that we distribute?
