#1259: xsl scripts to generate programmer cheat sheets

 I usually create cheat sheets and post to BostonGIS.com for each version
 of PostGIS which seem fairly popular.  Given we have so much in PostGIS
 2.0, I generated some xsl scripts to standardize it and make it easier to
 generate and change.

 I have this more or less done for topology and tiger geocoder.
 Which you can run with on r8058
 cd doc
 make topology_cheatsheet.html
 make tiger_geocoder_cheatsheet.html

  For the raster and PostGIS ones I may need to leave out the descriptions
 to make the function names fit on 3-4 pages.  My ideal size is like a 2-3
 pager for everything.

 I'm thinking of having some way to designate what listings get included in
 cheat sheets as well - like a new tag or something as some functions are
 more common place than others.  Right now I'm just outputting the first
 program listing from each function, which is still a lot even for

 any other thoughts are welcome.

 Attached are the current generated tiger and topology versions.
