Though about it but that would need someone with access to the CVS
server and since we're not in a hurry....

Back when syngin and I started profiling was simply unusable so we
started like we stopped with the old system to have a somewhat familiar

Every one in it's own distinct tree. The transformation has to be
started once for each language and will spit out the document or a
directory for it.

I can't see a reason why, unless you want to mix languages, but even
then one can point to a different directory, so...

You'll get it. I still have no idea how the mapping is supposed to work
and thus look. Once we defined a format and a meaning I'll set up a
stylesheet to produce it. The sample pages we already have, we just take
it from the documentation. :)

I'm terribly sorry, but it was your idea so you are the one who needs to
explain how it's supposed to work. I disliked it from the beginning
because I've experienced a lot of friction with mapping to automatically
generated HTML files in the past but since I'm not the one having the
time to implement it, I certainly have no voice in here....
