I tried the openjade approach, but decided to ditch it because
openjade takes 13 seconds to process my one-page test document. If
documents reach decent sizes, this will probably be worse.

But it is good to know that there are now two ways available to
process the XML document: openjade->pdfjadetex, and xsltproc->htmldoc.

But I'd like still to see output from xsltproc->passivetex.
