Security, features, wiki language, macros for integrating with unit 
test code / JIRA reports - but mostly its just a nice tool to use etc.

Its like saying, hey this JIRA things OK but whats wrong with bugzilla. 
If you've used both you'll know what I mean.

There's not that much content. But we could start with just the manual 
in the new wiki, then see how we get on. The great thing about this 
internet thing is we can link across websites :). So even if the old
