Beautiful! You did quite a few interesting things with plink, many of
which I plan on shamelessly stealing. :-) More importantly, it looks like
a tool that Henry can use out-of-the-box for the Bootstrap site, which is
not the case for Purple.

My number one requested feature would be to get plink working with
DocBook. My original intention with Purple was to start with my own
simplified XML vocabulary for generating documents, and then gradually
migrate over to the more commonly used and more complete DocBook DTD.
However, because purple.dtd has been more than adequate for my needs so
far, I haven't been motivated to migrate. I know this won't last forever,
however, so if you beat me to the punch and start supporting DocBook, I
may have to adopt plink myself. :-)
