That would be illegal, as we don't have the right to use code from GNU GPL 
software (PmWiki), distribute modified versions and not releasing their source 
code under the same license. For MIT-type licenses (most JavaScript editors) 
it would not be illegal, only unethical.

Note that a WYSIWYG editor may eventually be written anyways and you won't 
have to pay.
