That would be nice...

Might OCAML be a useful language...?

And plan on using that until something drastically better comes along.

Here's a list of pages from both wikis, side by side for comparison:


There are only about 150 newer pages in Mediawiki, and some of those
have very slight changes... You may be better off dealing with CLiki

I'm also thinking about a CMS interface for the mailing list archives.
 This is mainly to allow for better indexing.
