> We need a way to generate a DITA file for the Reference Manual from the messages themselves,
so that when new messages are added or changes are made, they are propogated to the documentation.
 The requirements are:
> - Some way of keeping metadata for the DITA file (parameter values, user response, explanation)
in comments within the messages file, or perhaps using an XML document to store the data and
the strings?
> - A script or xsl transform that reads the messages and generates the DITA file, adding
the metadata where necessary.
> - A script to do a one-time conversion of the DITA file to the messages file (whether
it be the current method of storing message plus comments or an XML file) so that existing
messages will be in the new format.  Then, any new messages must follow the format.
