I am confused, we have several wikis now?

- http://logand.com/picoWiki/
- http://www.picolisp.org/
- http://picolisp.com/5000/-2.html

Can I wish for the RSS feature?  And versioning?  And maybe diff view?

The new wikis seem very complex to me:-( After I wrote my original
picoWiki, I found that even that was way too complex and came to the
conclusion that a wiki for a small community should be something like
the ultimate and first wiki ever http://c2.com/cgi/wiki which I find
brilliant both regarding content and implementation;-)

I must admit that I find this account feature unnecessary overkill:-(

Also markup seems too far from plain text.

On the positive side, it's great to see some community effort and
movement in the right direction;-)

Cheers,

Tomas
