  Well if stylesheets breaks that much between versions we should
not rely on current. The right think to do is the following:
     - analyse the list of "API" we are using from the standard
       DocBook stylesheets
     - send a mail to Norm Walsh Cc'ed to the DocBook-Apps list
       asking what can be considered safe "API" in the DocBook
     - depending on the answer, tweak the customization layers
       or fix the dependancy
     - in the later case express a version dependancies toward the
       docbook-xml packages

  I am supposed to see Norm at the end of the month, but I'm Cc'ing
him now to see if there is an official stable DocBook XSLT API.
