Now, he have to fight over *Wiki* versus LaTeX versus AbiWord versus LyX ;-)

This is a major disadvantage, I don't like the idea that the document can be in
only one form. For that reason, I much prefer LyX (or LaTeX).

Actually, my opinion on documentation format is: "He who writes the doc gets to
decide on the format".
