Gosh, and I thought the existing toolchain was already ridiculously
slow.  Couldn't somebody write a Perl script that generated the HTML
documentation from the SGML in, like, a second?  I mean, we're
basically just mapping one set up markup tags to another set of markup
tags.  And splitting up some files for the HTML version.  And adding
some boilerplate.  But none of that sounds like it should be all that

I am reminded of the saying that XML is like violence -- if it doesn't
solve your problem, you're not using enough of it.
