My main objection was that it's overly complicated and unnecessary.
It's an absolutely ridiculous toolchain, that one shouldn't have to
learn merely in order to write Docs.
If there had been an insistence on a particular look-and-feel with a
supplied .css, I would've been fine with that. Instead I gave up.
