I want to divide the review and glossary pages into one page for each item
(language, OS, word ...), preserving the original pages as indexes and other
sparse material. Any objection?

Probably is sufficient a simple type-setting language developed as Common Lisp
macros. Unfortunately I'm not proficient with CL currently, but Araneida

   Araneida -

a CL web server, on which CLiki is based, *seems* to have such a thing;
someone have any experience with this?

As *output* I think that HTML+CSS is sufficiently flexible even for printing;
as "proof" I point out this DTP package:

   Cascade DTP -

So, at least initially, we don't needs a plethora of differents output
