This can be worked on, though, using much the same way as the subscriber
list/page code.  MrBawb (Dan Drown) let us know that he's presented a

We're getting closer though.  Last release we did pretty well --

we'd be partway there.  Making it so the wiki could be run from multiple
servers would go far towards getting us the rest of the way.
