I agree with Ken here, why shouldn't some questions appear in mutliple
sections?  Some DTML questions might also be SQLMethod questions, or
Image questions.  If you label the question with a set of keywords, then
you can automatically include it in multiple sections.

Obviously this breaks the current XML structure :-) But what else am I
here for but to make everyon'es life difficult.
