When I sent this I attached some top-level html files, but my mailer seems 
to have eaten them.

The tarball made it through, however.  If you look at the output dir 
inside the tarball, you'll see the QIPs I mentioned in fully rendered 

The other stuff in the tarball is some code to convert QIPs from text 
format to html and generate an index.
