Does the term "chicken-and-egg problem" ring a bell? 

There's a better backend-processing candidate for the text stuff (html2text, 
IIRC), and it's even on the SourceForge SGMLtools-Lite project page as a bug 
report that this must be implemented. I think that grabbing this bug would be 
a more useful passtime than writing new stuff for Linuxdoc.
