I agree :-)

I'd love to have something like latex but that outputs html directly
(ie: has the full programming power of tex inside, not that I know how
to use it, of course)

Interesting... google landed me in the w3c recommentation about xslt,
pretty much the only thing I could understand is the simple example at
the end. Feels powerful. Is there a url you would recommend to read more
about this? A program I could use (and its rpm)?

My feeling as well, the current implementation of the site is simple, I
like that. 

Except that it is broken in a way. Not only would \ifthenelse or
something equivalent be interesting to have for translations (at least
for the way I picture translations could be done). It would be really
nice to have different main pages specific to the different versions of
the distributions, all generated from the same source. For that to work
I'd also need conditionals...
