Indeed, it's not the WikiWay, but I'm trying to write a quickstart
guide for the naive.  Dumping a "work in progress" on them would not
be very useful.  (How many software products ship with "first draft"
manuals?  How many of those products are *successful*?)

Yeah, I've had to mess with version control before.  It's too bad that
TwWiki uses the RCS model (only one revision at a time) rather than
the CVS (branching and merging revisions).
