Excellent work, my friend.

Each sub-project should probably have a docs target with some
specific XDocs.  The parent target would have the main page that
binds everything together.

One thing that I was thinking of:

Since we have *a lot* of subprojects in Excalibur, there is no
way to have a neat list of *all* the subprojects.  It is unfortunate,
but it is a reality.

Sun.java.com solves this problem with a drop box.  You can go directly
to the project of choice using the drop box.  I think that might be
the way to go for Docs organization.

We need to have an official release of everything ASAP.  Let's start
with a Cornerstone/Phoenix/Apps:Demo/PDK joint release.  As the rest
of Apps gets ready for a release (Apps:FTP would be good), we should
release them individually.

Excalibur needs to finish, get their docs online, and get going.

Man, Maven would rock for the Excalibur documentation system.  We can
have a whole set of well organized pages for each subproject with only
a project.xml per sub project.  Any further docs would be optional.
