The problem is that there are several methods of deployment at the  
moment.  i.e. XML->HTML (ala httpd) Confluence exports
To rationalise these into one kind of site would be extremely  
difficult and ultimately a laborious task which I am not sure many  
folks will be all that willing to be involved in.

For example to convert the httpd to confluence would not go down to  
well, due to the sheer size and nature of the content.

The inverse is true too, I'm sure, for sites like the spamassassin,  
converting them to the xml->html (via ant) may not go down so well.
