This is true, but there's no way to separate out a single artifact
from the DITA toolkit like a single jar. Because it's a set of DTDs
and XSL transforms, you need everything in the toolkit (minus docs,
demo, and samples dirs) for it to function.

No, but as I said, it's a slightly different animal than a Java
library in a jar.

That's fine, I've committed the changes to both the doc build files
and updated the website.

Mind if I ask about this on repository@? That seems like the best place to ask.

Maybe. Do you have a link to info on the hackathon? Either way, I'll
see you there. :-)
