Yes, it's new.  Basically, what we were doing before is dumping all of the
docbook-xsl catalog entries into /etc/xml/catalog.  The INSTALL file creates all
the correct entries in its own catalog.xml file for us.  But, that file isn't
searched by default (only /etc/xml/catalog) is, so trying to find the
stylesheets won't work out of the box.

There are 2 options here.  We can set XML_CATALOG_FILES to contain the new XML
catalog.  This variable is read by anything that needs to read XML catalogs.  Or
we can do the "delegateURI" thing, which basically adds an entry to
/etc/xml/catalog (which is *always* read) that says when we find the URL given,
look in the given catalog file for the rest of the configuration.

This is similar to how docbook is setup - having /etc/xml/docbook contain the
nitty gritty details, and /etc/xml/catalog has an entry delegating all lookups
for DocBook related stuff to /etc/xml/docbook.
