That is actually a pretty good point. If our Wiki is good enough in
terms of content, we can try and figure out how to automate
creating a book.

I completely disagree. You are proposing to create documentation in a
completely unstructured format and then writing parsers attempting to
create an exchangeable format.

See my mail some minutes ago - I think it is possible and not too hard.

It is re-inventing the wheel by starting with a rectangle.

Well, a pair of angle brackets in XML already looks like a rectangle -
and not really like a circle *SCNR* [1]

We already have all the style-sheets for XML to provide the formats
we need (including wiki text).

The problem is not "wiki text output" - that's easy.

The problem is "merge changes in the wiki back".
