That's helpful.  Perhaps I can look for db2x_docbook2texi first, then. 
However, if they don't have the docbook2texi package installed but have 
docbook-tools installed it will fail on invocation.

It looks like RedHat's docbook-tools is even older than docbook2x.  I'm 
not sure if docbook-tools is commonly installed.  Do either of you think
this approach is feasible?
