Brian,

Agreed.  I also wish there was a way of syncing specific docs  
(HOWTOs, FAQ, INSTALL, etc.) between CVS and the wiki, so maybe going  
back to having DocBook (or similar) for those docs is the best  
answer.  Just checking Google, there are a few conversion tools for  
MediaWiki to DocBook, including this one:

Do you think that would be best?
