Probably the absolute minimum would be XML->XSL->HTML
and nothing else.

Not sure how many people would use it just like that, but
its not hard to imagine that this is very simple starting
point for anyone coming into XML web publishing.  What
modules you add *after* that would certainly differ...

Actually, It's quite easy to do now with 2.1 - just copy to and exclude everything you

don't want.

My personal theory here is that everyone has the _illusion_ that they 
all have common basic needs.  As an intellectual exercise, try to come

to an agreement here on what blocks should be excluded/included by 

I've never used FOP, so you'd have my -1 on that for starters! :P
