OK, I won't go there then...

After some digging I found that it is the custom .jsl file in 
commons-build that is responsible for the left-alignment.

That also explains why the size is different, because commons-build puts 
a table inside the footer, which in turn contains the actual text.

See additional comments there.

That needs to be <version position="left">, but yes it works nicely.

Actually it does interfere. I have moved the xdocs from id/xdocs/ to 
id/site/xdoc/. Will try to set the site root and see if it still works.

What is your opinion on directory-layout? Should we change it if/when 
commons moves to Maven 2?
