Apparently ;-)

Seriously, I think we will have both, but perhaps for different reasons:

* Wiki for document creation and collaboration, for [RT] sharing and the 
* xdocs for reference documentation, in-sync with releases/branches, 
incorporating Javadoc, etc etc

Don't forget Wikis have no hierarchy (except as made apparent through 
hyperlinkage), all Wiki docs are stored in one directory and are not 
very well organized serverside (which is the purpose, of course)

I see CocoDocoWiki as a breeding pool, and grown-up fishes can then 
migrate to xdoc heaven ;-)
