Yes of course, I'm not fundamentally opposed to any technology. I was only seconding the suggestion
of the use of LaTEX as I find it superior to docbook in every way. It seems to me that if
we want
the programmers to contribute a lot of this content then something like Markdown, Org, or
even just plain text would be the easiest
