Ya think?

I've just about given up trying to figure out what SGML or XML packages I
should have and which I should not - the maintainer(s) involved seem to
have really dropped the ball with one or more package transitions and now
it's all just a confused mess.

I've contemplated filing bugs, but I'm not sure which packages to file
them against exactly.  All I know for sure is that something is old and
needs removing from the archive, something else needs to properly conflict
and replace it, and other things need to depend on the new packages and
preferably also conflict and replace the old.  Or something.  Madness as
usual, right?
