I looked around to see how other projects handle this type of thing and it
seemed like a number of them packaged the xsl stylesheets as part
of the package.  This provides an easier means of specifying where they
exist and enforces consistency because eveyone is using the same version
of the stylesheet.  By also distributing saxon we can make this a zero
step configuration.  The price we pay for this is a larger distribution,
but in this case I would simply recommend creating another cvs module
solely for documentation because most people aren't interested in building
the documentation, only reading it (if that).

I got "org.apache.xml.dtm.DTMException: No more DTM IDs are available",
but the root cause is the same.  The xalan transformer shipped with the
1.4 jdk has a number of bugs.  I was able to run this sucessfully with the
1.5alpha JDK.
