Just to be clear... I'm *not* pushing for a change to a new toolchain
before F9.  I think it would be awfully rash of us to do so at this
point in the game.  

I also don't want anybody to mistake my enthusiasm for publican as
somehow knocking the current tool chain.  I'll be the first to admit
that I don't know the current tool chain very well.  Additionally, I
don't think we've tested publican enough (as far as the translations go,
especially) to know whether or not it's a good fit for what we do.  What
I *am* enthusiastic about is how quickly publican allows people to hit
the ground running, especially those who are new to DocBook and their
tool chains. 

If I had to prognosticate at this point, I'd say that in two years'
time, we'll have taken the best pieces of publican and the current tool
chain and welded them together.
