well, I started some time ago with implementing a Wiki Doctype into 
Lenya which then would allow simple transformation into XDoc, but I 
never found the time to finish it. But I really hope to make some 
progress this November.

Also I once tried to get my hands dirty on James in order to connect it 
to the workflow engine of Lenya. IIRC the mail-workflow concept was 
originally suggested by Stefano and I believe that it would really get 
things going, because mailing lists are still the glue of an 
ansynchronous global dev community. Also the character of watchdog mails 
have proven to be very successful for Wiki like CMS. AFAIK Wikipedia is 
using them.

But I could definitely need some help there.
