For what it's worth, I have a python script and makefile that somebody
could modify to implement it for this version -

  https://github.com/es5/es5.github.com/blob/master/spec-splitter.py
  https://github.com/es5/es5.github.com/blob/master/Makefile

(I didn't write the original script; it's a modified version of the
http://html5.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/spec-splitter script that we use for
generating the multi-page version of the HTML5 spec.)

If nobody else gets around to it in the mean time, I guess I'll try to make
some time to write it up myself and send a pull request.
