OK - as long as someone shows me how when the time comes.

This would mean published docs in Lenya that are already *approved* for 
publication in the final docs would automatically appear. New published 
docs in lenya would need adding to the relevant site.xml for the real 
docs, this is the point at which we bring order to the chaos (the order to the chaos)

Currently this is done through filter XSL's (see the daisy plugin in the 
locationmap branch), but I think views may provide a better solution. 
It's on my todo list.
