You've added a lot of useful and well written material... thanks much!

The conversion guide started with a tiny outline that Mattias suggested
last week. It's already grown to the point where I think it needs to be
broken up into different sections. :)

Agreed! Documentation is always a chore so it tends to get pushed to the
back burner. I think the wiki concept is useful here because everyone
can add a bit or piece to the whole without having to get bogged down in
creating and maintaining an entire document. The wiki is kind of a RAD
for documentation. The markup is easy to learn but can produce a fairly
nice looking web document without getting all tangled up with html.

Thanks for the feedback... I'm glad ya like it!

I'm currently setting up a read-only mirror site and cvs that will do
periodic cron updates from SF just in case something gets blown away.
I'm also going to add a prefix tag to the wiki engine to stop it from
making wiki links out of every PascalIdentifier! :)
