As long as B and D are not exclusive.  In other words, the shell script
is a hand-holding that duplicates the work the rest of us like to do
manually.  One can progress from the script to manual work, when ready.

It seems to me our direction is clear, in that all the CVS heads *and*
me agree. :)

1. Move all of the common files to a single module, docs-common
2. Make that a peer of other modules, in terms of build environment and
how it is pulled from CVS
3. Adjust build environment and parent XML files to use the new module]
4. Create a shell script that automates the following:
   a. Clean-up before initial import of source
   b. Clean-up prior to each commit ... maybe it removes all ~ files and
puts anything in .cvsignore that is not already in CVS?

How does that look?
