I've got no particular objection so long as it doesn't require any more
post processing after a checkin to make the pages active on the server.
The CVS support for post-processing after a checkin is rather fragile,
so we don't want to mess with it unless absolutely necessary.
If that's not possible, we could create a template page from which
every other page must be derived. Its purpose would be to provide
a consistent look to the various pages. This is less attractive as
we'd have to convert each page (each time we change the template!).

Actually, Marc Lehman first requested this assignment a while back
(well before we had the pages in the CVS tree), so we should give him
first crack at it if he still wants it.
