Having slept on it I still can't see any huge drawbacks to this plan,
so let's make it an official one.

I was hoping to have finished patching Tom's CGI::Wiki::Kwiki soon, so
we could use an instance of that to flesh out the docs and tests -
writing the docs directly in POD on the wiki is the first feature that
we'd need to get sorted.  So I need to make multiple formatters work.

There are all kinds of other highly shiny things we could make a
properly powerful Wiki::Toolkit development wiki do - auto-generate
tarballs for people to download, auto-syntax-check the tests,
auto-check POD validity, that kind of thing.

I have CGI::Wiki::Kwiki CVS access.  If you're interested in working
on this (it's basically a wiki application built on CGI::Wiki) then
drop me or Tom a line.  Extra help would very much hurry things up.

Of course there's nothing to stop anybody making a start on Wiki::Toolkit
docs/API and just posting it to the list for people to see.  Please don't
wait for me to start, just dive in and write something.
