We've had several discussions about doc format on this list before.  The
suggestions have been LaTeX/LyX, DocBook, Wiki, AbiWord, RTF, HTML, etc., with
some people very determined to stick to their favorite.

The one suggestion that I like, is that whoever does the writing chooses the
format.  I know that it would give us a mess of different formats, but it
should then be between the writers and the doc coordinator (Gary Van
Domselaar) to put everything into a manual, when the time has come for one.
