unless I am doing something wrong it looks like I still do not have any write/edit permission
on the wiki.

If I am not completely wrong some major sites (e.g. twitter) are still using version 1.0a
of the spec.
For this reason, if we want to gather any crowd to use Amber it would be good to support at
least client side also version 1.0a otherwise people would be oriented to use some other Java
libraries (e.g. Scribe).
The effort to do it for the client module should not be to huge, but there is obviously an
overhead. But again just my 2 cents :)
