Yes well some usage sections are better then others.  I took a look
again after reading your comment and some of those are decent.  I
guess we can keep/port the existing ones for now.  Perhaps we can
consider dropping again when we have the simple examples hosted on the
zone.  The examples themselves show usage and the source code servlet
allows you to see the JSF.  No sense maintaining two copies at that

I agree that the automatic generation would be excellent.  I'm not
volunteering either.  The TLD docs are done automatically and I bet if
we looked carefully we would see that many of the components are
already out of sync since its hard to keep the documentation up to

I agree.  That was what I was thinking.

Good point.  This could be done as each component is migrated to APT.
