I don't really have any inherent interest in wikis, but definitely I see
that writing sufficient introductory documentation is difficult, and making
it easier for users to contribute and make docs/tutorials available would
be good.  I'll be changing jobs in a month (and the abridgegame.org server
is my work computer), so it's not a good time for me to be changing the
server setup.  It does seem like a darcs wiki would be useful, so I think
once I transition over to a new server I'll see about setting one up.

It does look useful, but at the moment I don't think I have time to merge
it.  If you want to add a chapter (perhaps after the Getting Started
chapter) and add it to the manual, I'll happily apply a patch (or if anyone
else wanted to latexify the email and add it to the manual).

Probably the thing to do is to add a separate file that will get \input to
