I agree wholeheartedly. I don't think wiki is a good solution for our
documentation right now. Our documentation is mostly in .texi, which
isn't hard to modify at all.
Well, actually our documentation (meaning documentation of compiler
internals) is mostly in source comments, messages on this list, and
people's heads. It would be nice if we had a set of .texi design
documents that walked through compiler internals, but we don't.
