Does anyone have any objections to me applying these patches under the
LFS/newxml module instead of to HEAD?  This makes sense to me for 2
main reasons:

  1) LFS-5.1 is being considered now and I'm not sure that this kind of
change is suitable for a minor revision.  Applying the patches to the
branch will mean HEAD keeps a consistent feel but at the same time they
won't get lost or forgotten about (again!)
  2) Some of the changes alter the structure of the XML (in particular
appendixa/[package].xml] can now be removed if the pages they used to
produce are being replaced with links back to chapter06/[package].html)
hence it lends itself well to the type of work that is being done in the
"newxml" module.

I'll hold off on applying these until I get a general feeling of
"OKness" (or otherwise) with the rest of the editors.
