I've used -me (and a set of extensions to it I wrote, -mx) for poetry,
short creative prose, and several college papers (where the professor
did not require MLA format).  I've set someone up with some -me basics
in order to write some software documentation as well.  I've also abused
it to write some formal business letters.  It's my preferred macro
package, but of course everyone will have their own preferences.
