Subject license

No better way to screw up discussions than to mention licensing.  I don't
think the code license is appropriate for high quality documentation.  Our
current manual, while extensive, is not "book ready".  But it's possible
that this project would produce something which is book ready.  We do not
want someone to be able to print it and reap profits off our work... 
unlike software which is high overhead (nobody would buy from a
fly-by-night, they look for support, etc.), books don't usually come with
support contracts. 

Just food for thought.  The documentation must be free, but it could have
commercial restrictions added to it.
