It also depends upon who your editor is at O'Reilly. I was lucky enough to use vi, Pseudopod, and subversion:


With ReedMedia (http://reedmedia.net/), we used vi, LaTeX, and subversion. It looks like with APress we'll be using OpenOffice, but I have convinced them to use subversion as I can't envision writing a book without version control.
