Okay, I seem to have enough rope to hang myself now.  I'll bite.  Sign
me up.  (You're still on the hook for the tree, I'm afraid.)

Just from the discussions I've seen, I'll be spending some time in
heads-down research mode.  Per suggestions, I'll look at docbook
and doxygen.  Then it's off to wikipedia and phpGroupware school.  After
that I'll probably want to cycle back to this list or a spin-off list
for a few philosophy debates.

As for the "format question" -- I realize delivery of GNU-standard texi is a
requirement.  I suspect the underlying storage of the documents will be 
some sort of SGML or XML, simply because it will make HTML-based display 
of the text easier.  I'll take a look at texi2html before I commit to 
that though.

I'll try to piece together a proposal and some directional notes for
discussion by the end of this weekend, as well as some questions for
requirements gathering.  Suggestions for requirements and suggested
cross-posts (e.g. Bayonne) are also welcome.
