This is not inherently different from people having to learn what
MediaWiki classes and so on do. If it's a well-designed language, it
will be as easy for people to pick up as alternative ways of writing
the same info.
The first step absolutely must be to look at what other open-source
products in our situation are doing, though. If we can take the
entire system wholesale from phpBB, say, then there's no reason for us
to reinvent the wheel.
