I'm not clear how documentation of "bundles" will work (I kind of 
prefer the word "package" which to me implies a more "finished" 
object). There are several options, e.g.

- include a PmWiki.Packages page in wikilib.d with a list of
  included packages and a link to a documentation page on 
  pmwiki.org for each package

- include a wikilib.d directory as part of each package with
  that package's documentation; activating the package would
  automatically look for a wikilib.d directory and add it to
  the wiki page directory array (could be done by the package

- adopt a convention that package documentation will be in a
  PmWikiPackages group, so the PmWiki.Packages page can use a
  (:pagelist:) to point to package documentation that forms
  part of a pmwiki distribution

And I'm sure you have your own thoughts...
