I see no need to duplicate things by installing the whole plugin in the 
project directory. It would be better to have one version of the plugin 
in the Forrest directory and only the customisations in the project 
directory. Simply have the Docbook plugin look in a standard place 
within the project directory structure for "your.xsl", if it finds it 
then it uses it, otherwise it defaults to the one in the plugin.

Am I missing something?
