India had been blythely saying they could do it, then going "Uh, can we get back to you?" and has finally come up with a complex hacked-code solution. Not what we wanted. I've pointed out a lot of the maintenance issues with having a totally-custom book that has to hack around a lot of the standards-enforcement tools on the Publications docbase, and someone finally listened.
