Cool, thanks.

That's a bit harsh.

Wikis have proven themselves time after time as a great way for rapid 
prototyping of documentation. Patches to xdocs doesn't offer the 
instant gratification of wikis, or the ability to edit/review/edit in 
such a tight circle.

Granted, wikis are -not- ideal for long-term documentation, but until a 
smooth wiki->xdocs path (or even wiki editor for xdocs) is available, I 
think we need to accept the place of wikis in the world.

So thanks, Michael, for pursuing this.

I guess I should start writing some docs now ;-)
