After using LyX for a long time. What I would like is a possibility to manage the life cycle of an article. My paper starts as a working paper, and handout and maybe a beamer presentation, then a long version, a short version, a version formatted for X, proofs, printed version, my additions and corrections to the printed version, a version for an online repository, bits and pieces discarded from the article that I want to keep with it, etc. Version control, Google wave seems to bring tools to manage the evolutive process of writing. Something, word processors are quite bad with. Cheers, Charles
