Well, no.  *Writing blurb-compatible files* becomes a required step for 
all committers.  And blurb makes that easy.  But it's pretty easy to 
write them by hand; that's why we pre-created the "next" directories, 
and there are instructions in the dev guide.  Also it should be easy for 
some JavaScript expert to write a static page that generates blurb files 
for you--it provides a form, you fill it out, and you "download" the 
blurb file.  (I've seen pages that do that sort of thing, though I don't 
know how to write that kind of JavaScript myself.)
