Is there any reason why the multi-user interactive part of techdocs needs to 
actually be at techdocs?

What I'm trying to rather clumsily say is: run whatever cms/wiki you want at 
www.generouscompany.com and just publish static HTML to techdocs.

PS - I've tried the wiki thing there currently, and I'm not convinced that for 
a document with sql/plpgsql in it it's any easier than HTML. If the solution 
ends up being FTP accounts, a template and my favourite text editor so be it 
- it's not like a few tags will scare contributors.

PPS - PG/PHP/Perl experience, just shout if I can be of any use. Not too proud 
to do testing/cut & paste/search & replace etc.
