I'm not sure I understand what you want, and how is it different than
editing the rather simple Quickbook text files. Note, if someone doesn't
want to personally rebuild the web content that's based on quickbook
that's fine. There are other people who will gladly re-build it for you.
Also of note, is that it's *only* Quickbook and Python (and at some not
too distant future Python will also not be needed) that one needs to
regenerate the web content. There's no Boostbook, Docbook, XSLT, etc.
