Well, there's a couple things that are negatives for texinfo (for me

1. I've never written texinfo.

2. I hate the info viewer.

However, if someone converted it to texinfo, I'm sure I could pick up
the concepts. And as long as the HTML output was shipped I'd be happy.

On the other hand, I have quite a bit of experience with DocBook XML,
so that is where I'd lean if I intended to move to a more powerful
documentation system. It's not that big a deal to me, though.

P.S. Added the list back.
