I think we will end up "forking" the book so we can work on the XML without a 
deadline. Development will still continue in CVS and when the XML changes are 
all done, we'll just port over the main CVS' text to the new XML format. Any 
other way would result in book update downtime. We've had enough of that in 
the last months, so not again.

Having that said, I don't know how long it will take to make those changes. 
First I need to re-familiarize myself with XSLT, then start thinking about 
new tags, structure, and the processing scripts themselves to turn XML into a 
more usable format (HTML for example).
