Tridge, Jeremy,

Can I bring up the issue of writing docs in 
YODL format again?  Will I be punished openly 
for doing so?  :-)

Here's is my justification.  Requiring volunteers to learn
a non standard markup language makes it harder for them.
Can we settle on a more standard format that will still
allow for generating text, HTML, and man pages?

Cheers, jerry
