Ok, it makes XML that builds into HTML.  There are some very messed up
<link>s going on, but those can be fixed manually.  I'm not super-keen
in the way it uses e.g. <emphasis role="bold"> to denote what might more
properly be a <term> in a <variablelist>, and similar usages.  These are
format-oriented rather than being defined by their context.

I'm hoping that using xmldiff or a similar tool allows us to change the
way the XML is done and not affect the translation.  This way we can
change the XML around the translations, on our own parallel schedule.

We need to do a proper clean-up, and note what it took.  Refer to the
FC4 release-notes module, the XML demonstrates the way it should be.
I'm wondering if we -could- do a script for the clean-up, the Wiki is
likely to be very consistent in the XML it creates.
