Please see my other mail.  It's for the improvement of build
system, not for the actual translation work.

I already stated my opinion so I don't reiterate myself
here.  But I do object to the tone of argument from XSLT
camp.  My work is just an evolution along the current web
site framework.  The developers see no change in how they
work except maybe longer build time due to the additional
transformation of the translation of modified files to
include out of date notice.

On the other hand, adopting documentation system used by
manual for web is a big change, especially for those who
have only worked with web site docs and not manual docs.  If
there will be a consensus to move to it, that'd be great.
But XSLT people have to sell the idea to developers.  It's
not an already set course we decided long time ago.
