ReLyX comes standard with the latest version of LyX and is how LaTeX "imports"
are handled.  I don't know how well it works.  (BTW, LyX was considering using
LaTeX as its file format - no import/export and no .lyx files.)

I am in the same boat with Jarl regarding command-based text formatting
systems like LaTeX/TeX and DocBook: They would take too long for me to learn,
and I have many other things to do :-)  So, I would prefer something with a
GUI front like LyX.  Wasn't someone working on a GUI front for DocBook?
