Well, not necessarily complex. We can make the WML data files be
automatically generated by makefile rules which would fetch the data from
DDP. With a little bit of parsing, there won't be any restraints as far as
the format goes.

So, we could make the DDP files normal stanza-format (e.g. Packages files.
Thinking about it, doc-base files could be used, too!) or something equally
easy to parse, and the WML files on the web site would have all the benefits
of WML plus the up-to-date DDP data.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
