Yes, that's all it is.  Do any of the pod2html translators not suck ass?

It would be nice if the resulting HTML had classes and ids appropriate to 
SocialText's CSS.  Also configurable locations for things like module search. 
  Finally there's the issue that most pod2html translators want to take over 
the whole page.

Tels, it looks like you've hacked up Pod::Simple::HTML to do some of that. 
Can you generalize it?
