I'm poking at it. I'll continue, though anyone should feel free to
jump in and code it up.

I'm not yet clear on the right way to do this. To begin, I imagine a
bunch of DTML/structuredtext pages in a zope folder. The page render
method would convert each WikiStyleHyperLink to either a navigation or
page creation link, depending on whether that page exists.

I've been considering:

1. add new ZWiki Document & Method classes - ideally these are like
Formatted Document with WikiHyperlinks added.

2. add some wiki-enabled formats to the Formatted Document class -
structured text + wiki, HTML + wiki, ascii + wiki

But it's probably

3. something much more elegant using the new (to me) class features

Comments, suggestions ?
