Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] XOR conditionals

Jirka can correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think you can do this with
profiling.  Once you have deselected the parent, all of its children are not
even considered.

I see three solutions:

a.  Use the rootid parameter to select the section for processing.  But that
requires knowing its id attribute.

b.  Customize the stylesheet to select the section in a manner similar to
how the rootid parameter works, but using a select statement with your own

c.  Put the section in a separate file and use XInclude to include it in the
main document.  Then it is not redundant, and can be processed on its own as
