I would have to agree - even if you were to use the db2ps script to
create postscript through TeX you would have to know LaTeX to format
the thing. I had this same problem last year at OLS - I told Andrew
that unless he took DocBook he would not get my paper in the
proceedings (especially as I was *talking* about DocBook). He
mentioned he wanted to move over to requiring DocBook - guess it
didn't happen.
