Yeah I saw that, thanks very much for the patch.

I was about to commit it the other day but something struck me and I 
don't currently have the time to check it out. Perhaps you could explain 
how it works.

My problem is understanding how this is helpful because all the XDocs 
would have to be in the same directory structure. And since we can only 
have one site.xml and one tabs.xml file in each project I'm not sure how 
you are making multiple sites. Perhaps a brief example would make the 
penny drop for me.
