What I had in mind was a way to include each script.  A page in the appendix 
would just pull in the actual script, probably into some kind of <pre> 
structure.  We can't use an xinclude though because it isn't a proper xml 
structured file.  We may be able to do something via entities though.  I'll 
research it and see what I cna come up with.
