I'm sure this could be done without too much hassle during the  
release build process, even if it had to shell out to wget or  
something.  I suspect there are more elegant solutions though.

I used to be one of those people, but the Solr wiki has changed my  
tune on wikis dramatically.  Granted editing in a <textarea> sucks  
compared to TextMate, but copy/paste is how a lot of folks edit wikis  
I hear.

The trouble with the wiki is that it is so dynamic that you wouldn't  
have a snapshot of it for a specific release.  If we could have our  
cake and eat it too....
