Yeah... And the switch over from multiple individual/per-directory 
'book.xml' files all over the place to using the default (sweet!) 
sitemap.xmap file helps as well. Unfortuantely, for the time being 
I'm/we're going to have to *manually* generate the 'example' PDFs 
(those referenced under examples.html & dev/svg.html). I think the old 
xml-fop site was based on forrest-0.4 (it worked under 0.5 to some 
degree, but there were problems). I think things will be simpler now...

I will. My hope is to get us moved to the white, because it's cleaner, 
and easier to read (IMHO). Whether we'll wait or not depends on how 
impatient we are. The fact that we can do vi updates if possible is 
nice... I just need to go back and make certain forrestdoc doesn't 
somehow clobber the updates...

Looking forward to making some real progress...
