Me too, I'm happy for us to move to DocBook/XML if that would give us
more functionality and compatibility with existing tools, and it seems
that this is the case.  I imagine the updated docs will continue to work
with an existing DocBook system as long as the DocBook 4 DTD is

If that's the case, would you like to commit your changes Krasimir?
