Yes, agreed. The killer objection placed last time was that it took
something like 10x longer to generate the HTML using the XML-based
toolchain than the SGML-based ones. If this is not fixed, let's forget
about this whole thing until it is. So, would you time the process
using both toolchains and report back?
