I did something like that on some of my pages (http://sec.42.org/) (wml
files are in the same directory as is stddef.wml which is automatically
included). I have now done some terrible hackery to get wml to generate
the output files directly insted of requireing that stupid stuff in the
#!-line (see the <pg> tag) This works quite well and is less of a hassle

nfortunately i've had no time to document this properly and
genralize it, and I will probably not do it anymore as I've gotten a bit
unsatisfied with wml in the recent time, the slow processing speed, the
syntax/behaviour changes i have to follow, and the workarounds/hackery I
need to make it do what I want.
