Pretty much trivial to add a wiki to the site. Although depending on the
amount of wiki trashing/spamming that goes on I would think that we
would want to give some thought to how we could protect it which could 
mean either some kind of restrictions or some decent versioning so we 
could roll back pages easily.

Certainly, the current wikis have been used in the past to organise
events like expos and do things like the newsletter. Having one that
members can contribute to would be very good.

Aye, and it would also mean that if we try to progress with campaigns
etc. that people could use them for communication+contribution.
