As far as I am concerned, my Wikis would be unusable if they handled
WikiWords in the original fashion.  So I disable it.  Or, er, they're
now disabled by default.

And I am still not convinced that G.A. is 'commercial'.  You don't pay
for it and they don't make any money from you.  Pretty soon PmWiki
will be commercial by PM's own design.  What will you do then?  You
won't be paying a license fee, perhaps, but you will most clearly be
associated with a commercially licensed product.  Just like I am not
paying Google, but use one of their free products.

I'm sorry, but this all sounds like politics to me still.  Politics in
software is just as bad as 'commercialism' in my mind.
