[GRASS-dev] Using "trac" is difficult

StackExchange uses Markdown, by the way ;-)

Your thoughts are 100% valid. We must remember that programmers
usually (or ideally?) use several languages, so using several markups
is natural, too. However, for non-programmers (users) it is usual to
know zero or one markup language because they usually see the new
syntax/language as a new problem (programmers ideally see new syntax
as a way of saying the same thing in the same way). Fortunately, GRASS
people are powerful and they have learned all the markups required.

Sorry for saying something which is obvious or just personal thoughts
but it is worth to remember that for some people it can be harder to
learn the second or third markup just because they think in different
way. Consequently, if it is too hard for someone, he or she will
create ugly ticked or even worse, no ticked (documentation, wikipage)
at all.
