I just want to make sure that it's clear that for most tasks, Lyx requires 
essentially zero latex knowledge, as the gui provides access to a lot of 
functionality without requiring the explicit typing of latex commands.

So hopefully using lyx would not impose any additional burden on Enthought in 
terms of learning latex (lyx itself is similar enough to Word/OOo that 
hopefully its use would not be a problem).
