How would posting comments work, however? I guess you could use an ASK form, but no current clients support it (the only one I can think of off the top
of my head is hgopher).

I guess that's one of the things that would have to be figured out.

Actually thinking about it isn't there a way to do simple input using cgi scripting?

Looking at the instructions for Motsognir it seems it supports the QUERY_STRING variable and since that is also supported by python:


it seems possible at least in theory. That means as long as we can get the data in/out of the cgi you could have python do the wiki stuff behind the scenes.

This is definitely looking like a major rewrite if it's possible. I still think it would be a worthwhile project.

Dammit. Now I'm wondering if I'm up to the task. *grump* Rusty programming skills... *grump*


If some people could hear the music of the universe would that make all others deaf?
