Legacy cruft. There was a time that I had duplicate dfns while
attempting to figure something else out. The latest commit to the master
branch has it removed - thanks :)

Ah, I thought it was required to generate some W3C-specific HTML.
Removed as well, thanks for the pointer.

Done, those are the default flags that the HTML5 git repo uses now to
build all of the specifications.

Seeing as how building Python eggs and using Mercurial is scary for some
people, would it be okay if I included the Anolis app into the HTML5 git
repository? Your license allows this, but I thought I'd ask first in
case you wanted to collaborate on it in a particular way.

I can either track updates from the mercurial anolis source repo, or
give you commit access to the HTML5 git repo so that you can continue to
modify Anolis there. Let me know which you would prefer...
