I've already volunteered to do a rewrite in Ruby (not Rails) but I have clear
some details with garbeam first. I agree about the ?key=value queries. I'm
more concerned about the wiki syntax, though. The lack of wiki escaping and in
some cases lack of ability for more complex formating (the color schemes page)
are more important to me. Proper revision history would be nice too and I
don't think I'll be able to resist writing a wikifs frontend :) I think that
garbeam wants it to be a small/simple wiki, though, and I tend to agree, so
I'm not taking any leaps.

I think the syntax merits discussion.
