It hasn't progressed much. There are a number of technical difficulties about 
fixing bugs in the javascript editor, integrating the rich text in the wiki 
page, working with existing wiki pages, working with mixed richtext/wikitext 
pages, upgrading/downgrading, working with page sections, working with 
uploads/files/attachments, autosuggesting internal links etc. Once the 
difficulties overcome, it should be a piece of cake. :-)

At the moment nobody is paid to work on this feature, so there are no contract 
deadlines. It will progress as fast as I find "free" time and I decide to 
spend it working on the RichText editor instead of doing something else. :-)

That said, I very much appreciated all the comments and ideas that people on 
the list gave me. I'll use them.
