When did we agreed on all that? I remember a thought of Nicola (actually
one sentence in the log) but never have seen any discussion about it on
this list. Actually I do *not* yet see that the plugin has turned to the
next-gen forrest, nor that it should.

I see that the focus of this plugin is to wide. 

IMO we are trying to rewrite forrest with this plugin, but major parts
*have to* change before we can do so. It does not seem practical to use
e.g. the views we have now or the processing of (tab, menu, doc and
site) and trying to rewrite the core. Copying things from one place to
another to just make it work is not my understanding of a total rewrite
of forrest.

IMO the xhtml2 plugin should only focus in providing the intermediate
format in xhtml2 and that's it. To integrate views into it *now* makes
the whole thing to complicated and slows down the process.
