I use the --xml option to add a revision history to some internal documentation.
When documents are published on the intranet, a script pulls the log in xml
format and adds it to the source doc, then the whole mess is XSLT'd to XHTML
1.0 Strict. It would be too bad if this ability went away, although I could
certainly work around it with some string mangling.

I've never used the --incremental option, though.
