Menu Editing - phase 1


Perhaps it's not really the time to start up discussion about this, but
when is, right? Anyway, while doing some ARC [1] stuff for Sun, I came
up against this almost insurmountable voodoo creation of George's [2].

Unfortunately, this is probably an interface that we want to support
from a system administration point of view in the long run - so making
it less voodoo is definitely a good idea. So I've managed to do up a DTD
for the vfolder-info xml file of some sorts [3].

I figure it would probably be a good first step to decide on the DTD,
get the existing vfolder-info files validating against it, get it into
the build/install time checking of the vfolder-info and then move
onwards from there and start documenting it a little.

		Let me know what you think [4],

				See ya,

[1] See if you really have
    time to waste

[2] I think he's outdone himself ;)

[3] I'm not a documentation person and hence know very little of this 
    XML/DTD voodoo

[4] I will ignore all flames of 'you have no clue' because well, you'd 
    be right
