        Well, can they export the printed edition from FrameMaker as
XML (or something ASCII-based), and then re-import the original XML
to FrameMaker and export that for comparison?

        Presumably a diff of the virgin vs. tweaked versions would at
least provide a list of things to review, and hopefully most of those
are already reflected in later revisions of the repository...
