There are definitely the merits to having a wiki list... in addition,
it'd be a nice place to direct people to ask about syntax, or for new
templates. (/me waves)

But then, where do you draw the line between f-docs-l and f-wiki-l --
between talking about how the content is created and how the content is
written? It almost seems like there's an unremovable overlap.

I'm personally iffy about it but I think the reasons *for* it are good
enough to request it. I have no problem with setting up another mailbox
filter. :)

In other words, a weak +1
