Although I favor dynamic generation, we are still left with the
'sequence problem' - unless we leave some sort key inside each doc that
can be picked up by the XPathDirectoryGenerator ... not sure if this is
a feasible/good idea, either.

Apart from my proposition of having some less book-oriented
sitemap-describing thing dispersed throughout the directory structure,
please re-read my ideas in and concerning this
ordering issue.
