I agree, people are broken, but they're also hard to fix, and you need
them to make this work :)

The whole wiki idea brings up programmer's FUD. I know as I'm a
programmer myself. You worry about the loose, non-portable non-
standard markup (you'd like XML), you worry about the markup not being
"enough" for your layout and formatting needs (you'd like books
generated automatically from the wiki content), you worry about loose,
non-hierarchical structure (boy do we like hierarchies), etc. I
personally love to continuously miss the point with such tecky
arguments :)
