which is what happens now. The code just give you data structures, and 
the templates manipulate them.

it's just that the datastructures are not very consistent. The thing 
that bothers me most are the various attributes that stand for dirs and 
paths. this is the biggest mess.

I suppose that once we release the site we can concentrate the efforts 
on providing a clean and consistent data interface from the code to the 
templates. and while doing that cleanup the attributes in the code 
objects as well.

Should probably do that before releasing DocSet (or whatever it will be 
called) on CPAN, so people won't need to redo their templates if we 
change things.
