why sgmltools being unmaintained isn't so much of a problem

Assuming folks are able to compile/install the sgml toolchain itself,
the need for SGMLtools honestly isn't that great.  After all, the
toolchain is shipped as RedHat packages (by Mark Gallassi) and as
official Debian packages (esp. see my 'task-sgml' metapackge which
should pull everything in).

Now, once we have all that going, the only benefit of SGMLtools is the
'sgmltools' script, which can very easily be replaced by some standard
makefile suffix rules.

So why all the hand-wringing about SGMLtools?
