I'm curious as to why troff was not used. It is much, much more common
(required for manpages), can be compiled into just about any document format,
and is a lot smaller than tetex. Isn't it important to make the guide
available to as many people as possible?

Also, the »wmii.tex« should be provided as a PDF (remember: guide_en refers once to wmii.tex. Don't know if it should refer to wmii.pdf or so)
