I actually want to sit down and get this whole xdocs things working
properly. Wonderful that it is, it was written two+ years ago, and hasnt
been touched since. I use it for generating docs for external project
(Axis, smartfrog) and that really hurts.

What I'd like is

-<libraries> fetch of needed components
-generate docbook content for feeding into db2pdf or FOP
-coverage of datatypes and nested elements
-better support for example code
-generate a quickref as well as the pages and a big PDF version
-usable by other projects

I'd probably start this in a new proposal subdir, as it would be fairly

No time to start this this year, as I am off on a 3 week holiday, and
have no laptop. 3 weeks with no laptop!
