Load on the wiki is probably not too big of a deal; it's supposedly on  
a fairly beefy virtual host connected to a big pipe.  The security  
issue is worth considering though.

Several people can actually edit the pages (and of course, I'd be  
happy to add permissions for you too Brad!), but it's true that I'm  
the only one that can push out new pages.  It's easy for me to do  
though, so a quick ping in email or irc would do the trick.
