Don't worry - I've not looked at gsbuild yet :P

I'd agreee with this plan.  Although the XML overhaul is looking quite
good already (IMHO of course) it still needs a bit of work and a lot of
eyeballs from devs and readers alike (the first group primarily for
ensuring the structure is sensible, the second group primarily to ensure
presentation is sensible).  The 5.1 release should definitely not be
delayed by waiting for the XML work to be completed (there's still a
long way to go!).
