This started on the webtools mailing list, but I didn't want to whine too

Then let me review it.  ;)

Does it produce a decent looking chart?  Doing something by hand here so 
that the docs for 2.18 are closer to complete seems acceptable.  Waiting 
for the ideal thing when we're within weeks of releasing the 2.20 version 
and the docs for the previous stable version don't even include a database 
chart yet seems ridiculous.  This is not a case where perfection seems to 
be necessary or appropriate.
