what we are going to implement now?

And if so, what would it look like if I had raw content in more than
one branch? For example could I have

<rawContent dir="/old_site_1/**"/>


<rawContent dir="/old_site_2/**"/>

And would I still have an additional separate entry in the sitemap to
have /old_site_1/index.htm on the menu or would this have to be
within the rawContent element.
