Unless I'm missing something, using svnpubsub will only remove the
need for the second part (checkout on p.a.o), but not the first part
(Anakia). People will still need to run Anakia to generate the HTML
pages from the XML sources, but when they check in the HTML, it will
go live immediately instead of being delayed. Right?
