It's not so funny to deal with the actual structure and make conversion tools
like this:
color=red -> optional parameter, <strong>...</strong> -> default value

Also, the editing performance is much higher when using a good editor
instead of html-wiki-forms.

In order to be motivated to spend time on this project, I
- don't want to get blocked by limits (e.g. wiki-limitations), that I
  cannot control
- want to have a well designed structure: ergonomic for editing and
  beautiful (as Hans said: TeX seems to be a good choice)
- want to use my favorite editor for writing the command descriptions

At the moment, I don't really understand how to carry that out using the
wiki... :(

Cheers, Peter
