I've also an idea which doesn't need a mapping at all and also doesn't
need any tricky XML->HTML processing.

I'd rather we simply render the XML directly because the mapping is
tricky at two points:
- The XML-transformation needs to be taught about creating files with
  a fixed name. This bit us before with SGML and is even more tricky
  with the DocBook/XML stylesheets.
- The docs need to be kept in sync with the GIMP Source which is a
  tedious work.

I don't think we have enough manpower to get the help done in time. I've
a business to run, have no idea where syngin is and it seems we still
have no content writers. My guesstimate for efforts we'd need to put
into it would be >400h to get something which is showable.

Tell me what....
