You don't actually need to list the documentation files twice in the
arguments to install-extension. It is only necessary to list them in
the `documentation' property. This is just legacy from older versions
of chicken-setup. It would be pretty easy to add an -examples-path
option to chicken-setup, but I want to think about this a little bit
and figure out what is the best way to specify a base path for
installing documentation and examples.
