I like that too, and I'd even also like to see the same kind of macro
for XMLTO. As a distro maintainer I'd like to be able to control which
version of xmlto (or groff) is used by the build, and -- more important
-- disable xmlto completely because, since the base system doesn't
provide it so I need to be able to produce reproducable builds, even if
some users have installed something called xmlto in their path.
