    I am taking one of the Java Wiki implementations and turning it into an
    instance of a <topicMap> where each page can be a <topic> and so forth. My
    plan is to add page version control and purple numbers (Murray?) before
    turning it loose. Also want to be able to copy&paste image files in as well.

    In the end, I envision that when folks get heavy into a heated IBIS
    discussion, they can go over to the Wiki and create a page, write a tome or
    whatever, then link it back into their IBIS arguments. That way, the IBIS
    discussion stays on task, discussing issues, not carrying long papers along
    for the ride.
