the idea would be to pass the current request URI as a parameter to the
book2menu.xsl (nothing special, you get the picture). Why not move the
tabs in a separate pipeline, too, with an accompagnying book2tabs.xsl.

Using the steroid stuff, we'd move from book.xml to libre.xml - I'll 
commit a sample of its current configuration this afternoon. We're still 
in the process of deciding where libre should go, since it has a scope 
which is broader then forrest/cocoon - it could be possible we post it at 
SF and include a libre.jar in forrest.

An extra pipeline to start with IMO. I need to run right now, but maybe
the top level directories in src/documentation/content/xdocs should be
reflected as tabs... opinions on this?
