FWIW, some wiki/CMS *software* actually implemented in Racket (none of 
this kludgey TWiki or massive MediaWiki or such) has been quietly the 
next thing on my unpaid work TODO list, after I release McFly and my 
rewritten HTML templating libraries.

I want the markup language for the wiki/CMS to use the Scribble reader 
(and probably Scribble subset language and formatter), to lower the 
barrier for people editing the wiki or authoring a PLaneT package to 
then go and do the other thing.  Most uses of a wiki installation would 
be hitting static files or blobs, and the Racket Web Server would handle 
editing and any tiny bits of JSON Web serving, so it could run a site 
like the official Racket wiki on a modest computer/VM.

This is vaporware, and I have not written a single line of code 
specifically for it.  Someone might beat me to it.
