I didn't mean to say the wiki was a *good* way to do it, but rather that
it's in the wiki so you and others could introduce and change stuff.

(In fact, i consider wiki woefully imperfect.  WikiForNow was something i
worked on as a stopgap, while the Zope CMF is growing.  We're hoping there
to develop some wiki-type benefits while remeding some wiki shortcomings. 
For instance, see http://cmf.zope.org/Members/klm/OrganizationObjects .)
