PS i should've mentioned in previous post, Alex, you really should be
the one. You already started it, and it has become a very useful
website. I am somewhat familiar with your knowledge in sql and elisp
and perl. I think it would take just a day, if you wanted to, to
switch it to MediaWiki. That is to say, i don't think tech know-how is
in the way. I do think switching to MediaWiki is a major benefit, and
thank you for starting emacswiki in the first place.
