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.
