It would be easier to edit and navigate if the attributes were all on
the same line as the <podling> tag

What do we do with projects such as "Manifold Connector Framework
(ManifoldCF)" ?

That name is too long for a navigation list and probably some other places.

Perhaps we need two types of name.
Probably better to use the short name by default, and allow the long
name to be used in some places.

In that case, we would need to add an optional longName or fullName attribute.

BTW, I've created an XSL stylesheet that can generate project-menu.ent
(which is how I found that Oozie was missing).
It uses the original podlings.xml format (except I converted <website>
into <resource>), but should be easy to change to use attributes
I'll commit it shortly.

I've not started looking at generating projects/index.xml yet.
