Thomas and Anthony,

Thank you for doing this!  Though I worry... is this not moving too 
fast? These tools are fresh--real fresh--and moving fast.  Is it not too 
soon for committing to a port?  pod2mdoc works over all the POD I found 
(not being a Perl junkie, however, I just used what's in the Perl 
distribution), but docbook2mdoc still needs a lot of work.  Fact is, I 
just don't know the "real world" landscape of ports using docbook (or 
POD, for that matter).  Would it not be better to have somebody using 
(or porting) POD or DocBook systems to break them in before putting them 
out for general consumption?  Thoughts?
