One problem I have with my exiting ikiwiki/markdown knowledge bases is
that markdown doesn't have a really solid, good-looking (via LaTeX)
PDF output mechanism, meaning that you can't produce printed
Wikis are also non-linear, which also causes problems when you try to
produce printed documentation (which is inherently linear).
Finally, docbook has good support for footnotes, endnotes, sidebars,
appendices, lists of figures and tables, and (in recent versions, as
an extension) some basic formula support.

You can edit docbook with vim and git; it's not docbook's fault if
there's no nxml equivalent for vim ;-)
