Hmm, MediaWiki already supports the concept of discussion pages.
But I doubt that it's a good thing to maintain DocBook sources via a wiki.
One reason is that you might get into conflicts with wiki syntax. Perhaps a
darcs repository would be more appropriate here?
But in general I kind of like the wiki approach. Maybe not for everything
(for instance, not for the GHC documentation's DocBook sources) but for most
of what's currently the Haskell website.
