BTW, the last speed reports about optimizations in the CLI (not yet in 
CVS) have brought a time of 4'30' to about 3'30'' (IIRC). Not excactly 
what I hoped for, but still a good start. I'm keeping track of it, and 
have high hopes  :-)

Ok. I will then commit the small fixes for the PDF-print-source icons on 
the pages later. If BTW you have removed them from the sitemap, (the 
printable and source matches), +1 to that.

After much thinking: basically I want to substitute the printable-page 
link with a "print" link. Making a specific printabloe page where there 
is a CSS profile for it, I concede, sucks.

As for the source, I want to be able to make it show the content view, 
but I can't get it to work from the CLI.

Anyway, that's the status.

Yes, agreed.
