I guess it might if you already know your way around both formats.  I
didn't see anything in the documentation I looked at that made it

If I wanted to translate a chapter of the French version of Trotsky's
History of the Russian Revolution I wouldn't immediately think I
needed to start at the preface or first chapter.

I haven't even gotten that far.  The makefile in the mess offered at

Knows nothing about generating version.xml that kendall spoke of.  The
book is not in the tar.bz2 of subversion, and apparently there isn't a
package of just the book in some common setup where one might run
 make version

Putting the book directory into toplevel/doc/book
(Where the tools directory is also located)
Is what I'm messing with now.  If I get it figured out how one is
expected to work with this stuff I may eventually have something
worthwhile to report.  However its not really very likely because I am
a complete novice in nearly all elements of this.

If I try to follow the HOWTO.docbook provided in the doc directory I
will have to find and hand compile every library since the creation of
the universe, so that looks like a non-starter.

For now I'm still not getting how to accomplish the most basics stuff.

I see you've asked Noah to join in and I'm trying to follow along with
his suggestions.
