And I am incredibly grateful for this effort.

I don't think so either. Still, Carsten has time and the interest to 
write this doc now. If transformation will indeed be quite automated, we 
can update his work later. Clearly I'm saying this, fully realizing this 
approach may shift additional work on my shoulders when we transform 
*all* docs. Still, my priority is content.

Understanding the implications of an issue aren't always evident when 
you're not dealing directly with the matter. I think everyone was 
trusting your judgment, which I continue to do.

I'm ready to start, but in a partial way. FAQs and How-Tos, as recently 
proposed on Forrest. I'm not ready *yet* to deal with all docs, like the 
one Carsten is proposing. I'll start testing this approach, as you are
