So how is someinterwikithing:blabla different?  I just want it on a header
somewhere that people can see it, otherwise the wikis won't link at all and
that will suck pretty bad.

Ideally we'd have:

[blabla] == blabla wherever it is found.  If there are TWO blablas then it
would go to a "blabla is here - [cocoon:blabla] and here [tomcat:blabla]"
but if you did [cocoon:blabla] it would link directly to cocoon.  Same deal
as interwiki links but allows crosslinking to be easy while preserving
non-cross linking too.  Not that it is possible.  I just think we're
fragmenting the hell out of everything in general (web pages, wikis, mail
lists, etc) and pretty soon Apache will be a big mess of spaghetti if it
isn't already.  I mean I couldn't begin to explain to someone where to find
something at Apache, I just type the link for them that I've memorized...
Our web information is truly a jumble of mess.  I'm not trying to be
inflammatory if its coming off that way, its just I deal with a lot of
normal people and we get out the message pretty poor because we try and make
the user learn how Apache is organized just to find a webpage.  I guess my
point has degraded...I'll stop.  I just think things should be flatter and
more easily located.  Planet too.
