No deliberate offence to Jeffrey, but:

No good if you don't want a non-open-source, heavyweight application
clogging up your system. Or you have a telnet-only connection. Or you
care about the file size.

Plain text is WYSIWYG by definition, a whole lot more platform-
independent and free-readerish. If we really need pretty pictures we
can always have a PDF version as well.

I might as well take this opportunity to volunteer to help with /
do large parts of the docs.
