I just found them and am evaluating them at the moment... they're quite 
good and I think I might be able to live with just some minor 
changes... I also installed the LaTeX Glossary but haven't really had 
any reason to make heavy use of it.

Well, there is the CVS support which is nice -- I once lost a large 
part of an important document I was editing, and CVS is a central part
