I'm not a big fan of wikis either. But if you are going to look at
evidence, look at the quantity and quality of docs added to the wiki
in the last six months versus the work in the main docs.

I'm not about to go deleting anything in the main docs. But if the
material on the wiki becomes a superior superset of the rewriteguide,
and nobody volunteers to push the material back to the main docs, I
will be fully in favor of deleting the rewriteguide in the main docs
and linking to the wiki.
