Incidentally, I suspect this is where CGI::Wiki could fit in the =

I guess the next thing to do would be to work out how to implement the =
parts of TWiki. This, BTW, gives an overview of TWiki's subsystems:

Ideally the componentisation would allow the Formatter + Plugins to also =
in as a module to the PostNuke framework

=3D=3DIt's been proposed, but nobody's actually offered to write it.  I
=3D=3Dreally don't think I'll have the time to do it myself any time =
soon -
=3D=3Dyou can see why at
=3D=3D  http://the.earth.li/~kake/cgi-bin/blog/blog.cgi/os.pod/TODO
=3D=3D - but I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be done.  If =

=3D=3DYup, that does make sense.  Although I don't mind loading up a
=3D=3Ddatabase client and hacking the store with SQL, I'm sure that a =
lot of
=3D=3Dpeople would hate to do that :)
=3D=3DThis is just a short response so you know I'm not ignoring you - I
=3D=3Dhave an awful lot to get done today.  I've never used Twiki; I =
guess I
=3D=3Dshould have a look at it.  I'll try to write more when I have some
=3D=3Dtime, maybe midweek.
