Is there any intention / interest / value in at some point
offering a flavour of PmWiki that supports the proposed Creole 
wiki markup standard?

See http://www.wikicreole.org/wiki/Creole0.1

At this stage it's hard to know how much traction Creole will
get. It looks to me as if it could be implemented as a
replacement stdmarkp.php file. Some people may prefer to use
a lightweight markup that has a measure of formal acceptance.

I imagine the PmWiki homepage may in future contain a line

    PmWiki can be configured to use Creole markup.
