Anyone out there using WordPress to do "real" technical documentation? If
so - what are the pros and cons?

Isn't TechWhirl still in WordPress? http://techwhirl.com/

An example of one section, http://techwhirl.com/software/cms/.

I think the site provides a nice example of using WordPress for document delivery, but I don't know if it provides cross-references or how well it handles multiple languages; Drupal has options for cross-references and languages, but it is a memory hog.
