ah, doesn't seem like a good thing.

I've never had any problems with taking plain text contributions and marking
then up myself - in fact there are a number of common scripts such as txt2html
etc that I use for converting them over to HTML format ;)
I'm still considering options here, but again I'm not so sure just wikifying
the content of the site is going to magically mean there'll be loads of
contributions made [if any].
I'm not being cynical or pessimistic here - given the historical apathy against
contributing it's really more a statement of fact.
