The magnum opus is intended to be available under a GNU Free  
Documentation License. I suppose that this is irrelevant but leaves  
the issue that it then forces anyone wishing to modify it to learn  
memoir on top of LaTeX.

Nothing is simple. I think I will wait until the magnum opus is  
terminated—assuming it has not terminated me first.

Grateful regards
