My document has one section which is a summary of the support status
for all the printers in my database.  When I do a commit, the
following happens:

 - A checkout happens with the -kv flag to get rid of the $..$ around
   the version and date.

 - A Perl program queries my SQL database and builds a linuxdoc-sgml
   summary of the contents.

 - Another Perl program preprocesses "src.sgml" into "pht.sgml"; this
   mainly consists of #including the database summary

 - All the usual sgml2foo stuff happens

 - The text one gets cat -s'ed to remove all those blank lines.

 - The built files are copied to my website.

 - The preprocessed pht.sgml file is mailed to the ldp and various

 - Everything in the build dir is blown away since it hasn't got $..$
   on the RCS id strings.
