Yes, we (the regulars that is) have worked really hard to make thw wiki a
productive, and viable method of collating new docs, as well as being able
to use it as a staging platform for the 'real docs'.  More so after the
difficulty we faced in getting the wiki setup in the first place.

I'm glad that the usefulness of the wiki has been realised.

I would be more than happy to move the wiki content to the docs xml format
should it be deemed the most appropriate location for it to be located. 
Either in its entirety or in part.
