I think what is needed is to allow the asciidoc-library to be used as a 
backend to python-based wiki's. For that there should be a usable 
interface for asciidoc. (eg. a loadable asciidoc module maybe)

I haven't looked at the code yet if it is possible. But if it isn't I 
don't think it would be a lot of work to do it.

We want this for our work as well. An asciidoc-frontend and indexing 
system for storage of text-files. The backend is a versioning system 
(subversion in our case).

Right, nothing to add here :)

I'm willing to commit time to this as well. I'm very interested in using 
Django combined with this. Keep me in sync, whatever you plan to do :)
