On a communal level, I think your reasons, Jane, are good ones for 
sticking with wiki. I'm not sure of it's technical limitations, but I'm 
sure there would always be a better tool no matter what we were using. 
Let's do it 'Ubuntu Style'.

Besides, I'm new to using wiki (Aaron's stupendous korgaseries.org is 
using one for my gear schematics:D ) and would love to get my hands in 
there again - woohoo!!

I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has 
always to be out of step with his time.
