indeed, personal experience. we use wml as a perl source
code preprocessor at cp, but that really only uses a tiny
bit of its power (the eperl pass).

wml is a wrapper around several different pieces of
software, which it applies to the input file in a series of
nine `passes'. it handles nested file includes, arbitrarily
defined html tags, m4 macros, embedded perl via eperl,
perl-style here docs, etc.

there is an auxiliary tool `wmk' which seems to operate akin
to make. i've never used it, but it might be handy in this

our intranet publishing system at cp utilizes a cvs commit
script that triggers a cvs update on the intranet server. we
could use a similar system and run wml over the source tree
via make after updating.
