Do you have such a package at hand? Or some guidelines
how to get it (other than trial-and-error). Is avalon
included in the size calculation? FOP uses LogKit and
A-Framework, only Excalibur appears to be in need to be
added, but what about other projects?

I am bothered with stylebook, one issue being that I don't
know anything about how it works.

Is there an HOWTO-easy-switch-to-forrest? In particular,
is there a package which can be distributed with a project
so that users can build their docs at home?
