I know I'm an odd duck; but no. They're _less_ accessible for me, as
both a reader and author. They look 'funny' when read as a text file
(the only way it makes sense to read them; I spend 99% of my time on a
computer looking at monospace text interfaces; mutt, vim and console, in
that approximate order).

When writing, I now have to be bothered about this format crap over just
trying to write a coherent document.

Look at crap like this:

"The memory allocations via :c:func:`kmalloc`, :c:func:`vmalloc`,
:c:func:`kmem_cache_alloc` and"

That should've been written like:

"The memory allocations via kmalloc(), vmalloc(), kmem_cache_alloc()
and"

Heck, that paragraph isn't even properly flowed.

Then there's the endless stuck ':' key, and the mysterious "''" because
\" isn't a character, oh wait.

Bah..
