Yeah, SO isn't a wiki.  It is a Q&A forum where answers can be voted
up/down.  The theory being that helpful answers will bubble to the top
of the replies so you don't have to read through everything.

I need to look into DocBook more.  I am also interested in the ability
to output EPUB with it.  I think in the next couple years e-readers
(and/or tablets) are going to be much more popular and it would be
good to have a format designed for those devices so people can carry
the docs around to read about Cayenne.
