not too tricky...you could try it yourself :
1. view a manual with the chapter _all
2. add the following ?skin=basic
that gives you an entire manual without a skin...then u can see the raw
html and try out some transformations on that...
im offline as i write this but i believe there is some good stuff online
about html->docbook transformations
if you can write a shell script to do it then we can hack it in somehow
