The current syntax is based on the JSPWiki Cocoon uses.

Unfortunately you are correct on this.

It can be done now.

We have

   .cwiki - JSPWiki format

IMHO we should also have a couple more syntaxes:

*.mwiki - MoinMoin (used in
*.ewiki - Email Wiki (using the format that is used in email
                       messages, like *strong*, _underlined_, etc)

If someone wants to tackle it, I'll be happy to add it to Forrest.

Suggestion: just change the cwiki grammar to the new format, and when 
it's ok, send it here. I'll take care in doing the other changes needed, 
like different extension supportl.
