I'm trying to figure out how to integrate existing local catalogs,
installed on a distributed file system (AFS in my case, but it could
just as easily be NFS or SMB), with Debian's /etc/xml/catalog.
The easiest (but maybe not the most robust) way would be to use a
<nextCatalog> element pointing to the catalog I'm already keeping on the
network share. Unfortunately, update-xmlcatalog only allows --type
(public|system|uri); I see no way to make it generate a <nextCatalog>
element (least of all in the root catalog, where I'd prefer to put it).
My main reason for wanting <nextCatalog> support is that a number of XML
bundles out there ship with their own catalog.xml files, and it seems
easiest to just include them in this way.
