Fine by me. Or maybe stomp the baseDirectoryURL property in the dist 
preGoal?  In any case, I will rig something. I will change back to 
relative links if Alex doesn't get to it first.

How can I get the subproject xdocs tasks to "see" the base project 
property?  I had to go back to cut and paste when I discovered that this 
did not work.

Another logical possibility, which I am not recommending that we do 
right away, but which we may want to think about, is keeping absolute 
links, but changing the host name in those links, storing host names in 
config files and allowing the "publish" process to update properties to 
the production host(s).  This would enable link-checking across staged 
apache web sites when others start to use the infrastructure.  We don't 
really *need* this now -- at least not for Directory -- but it might be 
a good thing for the site plugin to support.
