I have my own package file with tweaks to the documents that I generate and
that abstract those operations whenever I need those. I want to see exactly
how the code generate is and I regard the texts that I type as programs and
I want to use good indentation practices, good abstraction (via new
environments and/or macros) and I got the impression that lyx woun't help
me with that.

Is my impression correct?

BTW, I also use RCS with my documents. I'll soon be using subversion, as
soon as I see how to set up a basic local repository and hook things up in
