Actually, there may be quite a few people who want Amaya. I can't
claim it right now, because I will be rather busy for the next week or

I do want to claim "thot" though.  I intend to package it within two
weeks time, and I also intend to add the ability to edit Debian-doc
files. I may not have the debian-doc stuff ready until summer, but it
will be very nice.  Right now, thot makes a nice WYSIWYG editor that
can export LaTeX, HTML and Postscript.

Right now, Amaya seems to have some problems with lesstif (version
0.75), so it and thot may have to wait a while before they will work
with Lesstif (it looks _very_ promising, though - some slight
behaviour problems with Text widgets and a layout problem - a
scrollbar shows up in the middle of the main window).
