I sorta like it.   I sometimes think the feature list is
slanted.... it's more of a you-who-use-the-other-wiki

PmWiki feature list as much as it seemed to be somewhat
of a PmWiki critique (both positive AND negative).

I think this is a pretty good start... but not sure if it's
a PmWiki Feature list...

What do others think?
