Well, yes, of course the wiki is especially strong for heavily 
hyperlinked pages - in my case it had to end up as a printed paper, so I 
could not make much use of that strength.  I especially like the way the 
wiki adjusts when you change the name of a linked page.  I used ZWiki in 
Plone, BTW.

Hmm, is this drifting to far OT?
