I think a wiki can have a 'dev' area and a 'user' area, but having two
systems is more overhead than makes sense for us.  We have such a
small and constrained team, we really need to minimize all overhead.

Well, let's go ahead and have a quick vote from everyone who has a
stake in it (aka anyone who has contributed to the wiki or is likely
to)...  I'll just send a separate email on it.  Let's have the vote on
the user list so users who aren't subscribed here also have a chance
to voice their opinion.
