That's what I meant by having an additional sitemap (in the web master
sense of the word).

But this page is not normally linked to from anywhere, is it? So unless
you explicitly build a link to it, a visitor or search engine would
never "find" it, unless they understood Forrest.

Btw: Is this page really needed in the _final site_? In other words
could we not eleminate or at least generate it conditionally?

Or, as a very simple solution, not sync it?

That sounds nice and easy. But I assume that it would also stop all
hiden pages from being generated once again, right?
