Yes, but I would agree that it's still confusing to many users.

I'd like to see if we can get linuxdoc support into the v2
sgml-tools packages. We'd need to provide the DTD and a
set of DSSSL stylesheets along with perhaps a couple of
catalog files. I don't know if there's anything else (at
this point) that would be needed beyond those components.

Do you think we should go that route? That way we have 1
toolset (jade/openjade), with support for both DTDs (DocBook
and Linuxdoc).
