you are welcome and encouraged to look at existing wiki modules (especially 
liquid wiki) and then build a great one using code and ideas from each. use 
the wiki.module name. i own that project, and intend to commit somebody's 
efforts there. wiki success requires great atenntion to user experience in 
addition to sane code. if it sucks compared to dokuwiki and mediawiki, few 
will use ours. it has to be at least decent.

in brussels we will talk about wiki but i doubt we have to build much. 
better to start now.
