Hello T.C.,

Consider this another nudge to release the sources of the XForms
manual.  On the plus side, I didn't nag you in 2004.  ;-)

Please consider taking some time to actually do this now, while the
sources still exist, and before you get hit by a bus or something and
they are gone forever.  The XForms sources have been free for a long
time now (Thanks!) and they really should have free documentation.
