O'Reilly Squeak book?

If we are forging ahead on a book, couldn't we sortof try to do it the "Squeaky" way?
I would like the book to be written "inside" Squeak - "literal Squeaking" or whatchamacallit. Some
simple form of weaving á la Knuth perhaps.
So, a question - what kind of formats do O'Reilly support? LaTeX? Som form of DocBook or other
It would be cool if we could write the book "together" in the image using some simple form of
locking in combination with the current updates-mechanism. Or something. And when we think it's
"ready" for print we push "Generate LaTeX" somewhere and voilá.
Perhaps I am way off - but just writing a book the old fashioned way seems so... Non-Squeak.
And it is doomed to become irrelevant after just a few updates! :-)
