It seems to me that there is a potential 'bridge' between
the mailing lists and the wikis - The mailing list archives!

What if the mailing list archives were 'PTK-enabled' in such
a way that it was really easy to 'promote' postings to a
wiki page status (preserving the original in the archive)?

What if members of could automaticaly find all
of their postings and add pointers from them to the relevant
wikis through-the-web?

Wiki pages could serve as the root document for ZDiscussions
that were gatewayed into the mailing lists, as well.

Hmm, if ZDiscussions and the mailing lists were gatewayed
into each other, that would get you a much better archive
interface almost immediately, and you could concentrate on
'promoting' ZDiscussion postings to a wiki page instead.

I'm rambling, but this seems like it would work really well!
