Did you ever try out the `Lout' document processing system?  If you read
the guy's papers, you think `WOW, this is great,' but if you actually
try to use it, it suddenly starts to get really annoying...  as you
might expect of a research project, he seemed to have spent all his time
worrying about the text formatting algorithms but hardly any thinking
about basic usability issues.

 I've just always wanted to bitch about Lout :-) ]
