* We want to have **well-readable** documentation source.
* We want to get **flexibility** in that we can modify the parsed
document using Python code.
In particular I have Docutils' document tree in mind -- use
rst2pseudoxml.py to see what it looks like. You can easily apply
transformations on these trees, using your favorite programming
language ;-). This is not (easily?) possible with LaTeX.
* We want an **easy-to-use** documentation system. Any documentation
should be renderable by typing "sometool.py input.txt output.html".
Getting multi-document output should be similarly easy.
For private mail please ensure that the header contains 'Felix Wiemann'.
