Okay, I think we've made it clear that we have two very polarised views 
of Wikis here. Can I suggest a pragmatic solution? Shall we put a note 
on the front page of the Wiki making it clear that the Wiki is /not/ an 
appropriate place for project documentation, but that it can be used to 
build ideas in a collaborative way, and to give /users/ (not 
developers) a place to keep 'annotations' to the main documentation 
(e.g. their experiences etc).
