For my part, I'd just as soon we don't go changing horses in midstream.  
I've got a lot of hours invested in the current suite of solutions, and 
to change to some new, different, set of annoyances at this point would 
just mean more work.

As for whether other parts of the website are in Wiki or Sphinx, that's 
a different matter.  I don't see any reason why we can't use a mix of 
the two.  Using something like Sphinx for material which needs 
flexibility in presentation makes sense.  Using a Wiki for community 
contributed material makes sense.  Let's do both.

Being in US Central time, while you all are nearing the end of your day, 
I've only just stared mine -- no caffine yet -- so the meetup is out of
