One win for a wiki in this case is that it's a way to "prototype"
documentation; everybody bang on a description of a neglected area,
converge on something that seems good, then submit as a patch to
the .texi files. The patch process is kind of inefficient for
wordsmithing, as the lengthy doc patch threads suggest.
You guys can use the Wiki for whatever you want. Certainly, I won't
stop you :)
