IMHO for the ultimate in documentation speed, assuming only one person is
doing the documentation, is VimOutliner (http://www.vimoutliner.org).
VimOutliner uses the Vim engine, so it has Vim's keystroke efficiency. It's
an outline processor whose features include promote/demote, expand/collapse,
hoisting, body text, interoutline links, and executable lines.
VimOutliner stores its data as simple tab indended outlines, so it's
incredibly parsable, especially using the Node.pm perl module
(http://www.troubleshooters.com/projects/Node/index.htm). I use outlines to
store data for menus, bookmark pages, the Troubleshooters.Com Linux Library
main page (http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/index.htm). I also use
VimOutliner to create book tables of contents, and then parse them to create
a LyX skelleton for the book.
