For my part, I think I'd rather emulate PG-Australia in a few ways.
Col has adopted a simple and functional header and a mercifully
abridged trailer that I would sooner borrow than PG-USA's
I also feel that his directory structure is more practical, not
to mention sane.

Darryl indicated his preference for XML.  While that sounds nice,
I'd guess that he hasn't had any experience using Gutcheck on
XML.  I for one intend to continue to crank out plain text documents
in the format PG-US and PG-AU commonly hold.  I'd recommend that
he has a go at marking up his first text - GWTW - into XML as a
trial and see how that goes before committing to this path.

All that said, I hafta say that I am grateful that Darryl has
taken the initiative on this.  Thank you.  When the time comes
I think my cheque book will also thank you/PG-CA.
