Have you looked at HelpTopic? It would be nice to document Squeak in
HelpTopic first and then export it to other formats like LaTeX to
produce a book. Something like Quick Guides  of Etoys.
It is easier to keep such topics in sync with releases while a book
tends to fall behind over the years and has to be refreshed. Also, code
snippets can be run from the topic itself without having to copy-paste
into a Workspace.
