GnuCash Documentation in pdf Format

I've not attempted to validate the xml in the docs for use to convert to
pdf, just that its valid for conversion to html which the build script
does. Its possible to do this, but I'd rather not add the MB of pdf to
the docs build and I haven't really had a lot of time to do more than
release new docs whenever someone updates them. Basically, anyone who
wants to submit patches to have the docs easily convert to pdf using
docbook2pdf is welcome. I'm not sure I understand your comment about
using docbook-xsl as this is from what I understand the standard toolset
for use with docbook.
