I generated a new site with "forrest seed", and found a
locationmap.xml file under src/documentation/content. But there's no
mention of document-to-fo.xsl in the generated stub; maybe it's
possible to override something at this level but it is not clear how.
On the other hand, I know where to find document-to-fo.xsl inside
Forrest itself, so I may just start there.
