    I just wanted to clarify my LaTeX comments, since I definately 
think I wasn't clear on some stuff.
    I do not care about having "one format" or "one standard way" to 
do documentation for Piper. All I was (inadequately) trying to say is 
that LaTeX (my preferred way to do documentation) was "compatible" 
with LyX, which Jeff and Jean-Marc seem to like. I do not think anyone 
should need to learn a new system to do documentation, and everyone 
can use whatever they want, as long as they produce documentation :-)
    Just like I would *hate* to have to use Word, I would never want 
to make anyone who likes Word (or LyX, or whatever) use LaTeX.
    Besides, time spent learning LaTeX could be better spent coding on 
Piper :-)
