My first cut at this is available at
It's a little over 1MB bzipped, and nearly 2 uncompressed. There's a
little trouble with links - sometimes they get converted to "internal
link", which works, while other times they appear to get converted to
HTML references, which don't work. But apart from that, and some trouble
that it seemed to have with the tables in the mod_rewrite docs, it looks
like we can generate a PDF without much trouble. Please let me know what
you think.
