Naah, I don't mind that.

The rationale for the wiki, is that there's no "out-there" Lua-based
wiki, and I'd love to see Aranha actually put through its paces by
someone other than me.

That's fair enough.

1) We're not planning on disappearing (We being Pepperfish Ltd)
2) Well, I am root on the box, is there any less constrained I can be?

Primarily I don't want to see more PHP on the box than I can get away
from, and Perl CGI based wikis are inefficient. Not sure how quickly
Python gets going, but running a python CGI can't be much more efficient
than Perl.

It was mainly an offer from the point of view of not wanting to see the admins stuck because sourceforge cock something up.
