Yup, that's the easy bit.

I think this is the sort of thing I was referring to. If we can clarify 
what we have in mind, and get a number of us behind it, then I could see 
it as being possible.

But there's a lot to clarify/understand. Would you be willing to explain 
here what you had in mind for your Forrestbot setup? Presumably this 
setup would still use CVS/SVN as the versioning system for the actual 
xdoc files?
