As a person in the 'XSLT camp', I am not against making changes to the 
current build system for the site to support translations. I just feel 
that we will end up duplicating large ammounts of work when or if we 
convert to an XSLT based system. ( Less Wine and more Dew I could apply 
to my own comments :-/ )

Do other developers have objections to moving the website to XSLT (like 
the manual) instead of the current Velocity/Anakia?
