Ahem.. that should say NO broken links..

Anyway, forrest-site tabs are now much more sensible.  They can be used
as a third level of navigation, whereas previously they were limited to
bookmarking stuff in book.xml.  Tabs can also link to individual files
and external URLs.  For example, xml.apache.org/index.html might have
each subproject as a tab.  If every xml.apache.org project shared a
tabs.xml, this could look quite impressive.
