Ahhh, that's my long time wish... :)

Unfortunately, it would probably require some braking of book's <userinput>
into smaller pieces and I'm not sure how much the maintainers are ready for
something like this. I remember Gerard mentioned several times that he
wouldn't want to change DocBook (or whatever describe it, I'm not very good
in that stuff) of the book because it would require people downloading it
separately in order to compile the book from XML.

The alternative is using of XML comments, but that would be a double work too
somehow and it wouldn't make a book source look very pretty.

But still, I wouldn't mind that we try either of these. :)
