The Wiki, which I'm using for the Askemos documentation (and some more
stuff based on it) has (to support this very "based on it" notion) a
way to stack Wikis on top of each other.  References, which can't be
resolved in one will be resolved in the more basic one, well loops are
permitted, but than it doesn't make sense to speak about "based on"
relations.  The different wikis just need a different template design
to make clear to the reader where they are.


The worst of harm may often result from the best of intentions.
