Pillar book skeleton

Pillar is a markup syntax and associated tools to write and generate documentation and books. Essentially it is the Wiki syntax part known from Pier which allows for generation of PDF, Latex, HTML, ...

There is now also a Pillar Book Skeleton providing a predefined structure for source files, as well as usefull scripts to write books with Pillar markup. It is already used for the upcoming "Pharo for the Enterprise" and an updated version of "Pharo by Example" book.

Nice if you like to write books or documentation. The project also includes mods/bundles/packages for text editors, that provide improvements for pillar files editing.
