It matters to me; if I'm going to put work into this, then that's what
I want the result to be. I'm happy, of course, for projects that I am
not involved in to use whatever publishing mechanisms that the people
involved in those projects prefer.

If you want to help with the writing project that I have in mind, then
discuss that on the list. If you want to start another writing project
whose primary goal is to produce an open-content, electronic book,
then announce that on the list too. If you want to debate the merits
of open-content versus traditional publishing, well, I'd love to have
that debate too, but this list probably isn't the right forum for
