That was my initial opinion as well, but there wasn't really a syntax
that seemed better and "universal" when I selected it, for support,
prior to XML and Sweave.

Now that I've actually seen biologists learn LaTeX, I'm not sure about
"overkill" anymore.  "Annoying" might be a more accurate description.
