You can also tell people who want to contribute but refuse to learn
XML to do the work in the wiki, then do a conversion of just that
content/chapter.  They can do the work in their User:Username space,
for example, or directly in User_Guide.

The wiki is a content gateway drug, it gets people hooked, then we
introduce them to the hard stuff.

It's more of a nightmare for the lead writer, but you can try it for a
release and see if it's worth the hassle for the extra collaboration
opportunities.
