Have you more or less finished working on it?  Safe to commit to Forrest?
Is the most recent version the one living somewhere in Avalon, or the one
in ~leosimons/..?  I'll have a play this w'end.

AFAIK, the reconstitution of a full DTD from entities is done by the XML

I'll have a play.

Alternatively, you could.. oh never mind ;)
