Hmm... Well, what I, really, are just the following (for all languages):
My scripts should be able to take any CPP defines and turn them into
SGML entities -- you can break it up into lots of files if you need to
and I can adapt pretty easily.

If you are going to start hacking it up for the potato boot-floppies,
we oughta branch for the slink version. It makes more sense to branch
the maintenance line of code rather than the "under active development
If you like I can take care of it and just branch now, or at least
make a tag so we can branch off that.
