that's right. In the old situation, we effectively had about a page and 
a half of documentation for a package, and then about 3 1/2 pages of 
tool-aiding sourcefiles (tabs.xml, navigation.xml, ...) of supporting 
materials, not to mention complicated, fragile build setups, and 3 
different tools in place.

What we put in place recently for the avalon site is a massive 
simplification. Everything is back to good ol' ugly anakia format (with 
maven's extensions). All sources for the excalibur website now live in a 
single tree inside avalon-excalibur/site/xdocs.

The downside is that there is some manual conversion work to be done on 
the documentation files (until someone writes the long overdue 
anakia->document-v11.dtd xsl sheets). Someone needs to take the xml 
files in avalon-sandbox/excalibur-old-materials/*/src/xdocs/*, convert 
them to anakia format (replacing <section/> with <s1/>/<s2/>/<s3/>
similar changes), then place the converted versions in 
avalon-excalibur/site/xdocs. Or someone should write a conversion tool.

It all ain't very pretty, but its pragmatic.
