The major problem I have with sgml2x right now is that it requires that
you point to a *directory* where your DSSSL stylesheets are. This means
that I have not been able to use a single file as a DSSSL customization
layer.  Instead I've had to throw Norm's stylesheets into a separate
directory ('docbook-custom') and then customize those stylesheets.
I've been keeping my stylesheets in CVS so that I can do a diff against
the original nwalsh stylesheets so that I can make my changes to future

I'm using sgml2x, openjade 1.3 (with patches applied), 
DB DSSSL 1.62 (customized), DB 4.1, JadeTex 3.5.
