Aha, ok that makes sense :)

While that may be, a Childrens' Hospital isn't likely to be exercising all the features of the wiki (expressions, code highlighting etc..).

I don't think i've ever used an open source product which hasn't had at least one minor bug, so the ability to write patches to fix issues is a big bonus.

I don't have time to learn Haskell, on top of Perl (which I need for my job) and French (which I need for my girlfriend (acquisition), and I guess ordering beer.... maybe food?..).

If you can convince one of the more permanent list members ( Alex Clouter, Phil Mayers, Peter Nixon, One of the Alans etc..), that a) the current wiki needs replacing and b) that they really want to learn Haskell, then we'd consider switching gitit.
