As far as I understand it, a short term goal of the quickbook developers
is actually to get rid of the conversion to boostbook/docbook. So it
won't be as easy as you make it sound to get back to a docbook version.
Please correct me if docbook is still intended to be a mandatory
intermediate stage between quickbook and html/pdf documentations.
