Docs now converted to RST and up on ReadTheDocs

I've just checked in the fix for bug 912064:
and so Bugzilla's documentation format is now RST (ReStructured Text)
rather than XML DocBook.

We hope that this will make the docs much easier to edit and contribute
to (although building the PDF version still requires 1GB of TeX...).

It also means we can put them up on ReadTheDocs, and I have now done so:

Pretty! :-)

There are many things still to do, but this is a good base for moving
forwards. I will be filing more bugs about enhancements, and encourage
others to do the same. Soon, we will perhaps want to reorganize the
docs, import a load of stuff which has up to now lived in the wiki
(because changing the docs was too hard) and so on.
