I do, and I like Frame a lot.  What you say here also makes me feel
more comfortable with Frame's non-free status; however the free HTML
generation sucks.

However, we have some internal projects where we are supposed to
maintain the real documentation in Frame (by our own choice) and it
seems no-one is willing to maintain Frame documents -- one reason
seems to be that you can't edit them in Emacs.
