Let's see how much I do after I find the time to work on the docs.

Well, I'm about to embark on an experiment in docbook for my company. I've just engaged a
writer and we'll see in a few months how it all goes. We are doing just that: taking docs
out of our CMS and putting them into svn. Our goals are to be able to generate pdf, embed
docs into the application, etc.

In the meantime, let's keep going with what we have now.
