Fred's the man now, but I'm certainly cool with PyQt myself. One
questions though: can we easily create a "kiosk mode" with it (no title
bar, scroll bar, or other frame elements)? That's important for the
demo.

I had used APT to create the Architecture and a few other documents.
See:

     http://www.xmlmind.com/aptconvert.html

APT has a lot of nice output formats, and is easy to exchange and
discuss over email (and also, it's easy to add very minimal markup to
paragraphs written as plain text).

That said, I don't care about pushing for the document format
anymore... as long as we use something open. Actually, I'm right now
in the process of writing and article on OOo's XML format, just as a
coincidence. Anyway, OOo is publicly document and libre, so I'm happy
with it.

FWIW, UML always seemed needlessly complicated to me for most things...
but that's up to Fred now.

Yours, David...
