Sure. Possible. I'll look at this. The two big things:
* Must be trivial to create an account, which it seems to be;
* Must be trivial to put a watch on pages.
If this is true, I'm all for it. No time to dedicate to this today, but
I'll be spending most of my time tomorrow on it.
I'll choose the trac wiki unless (a) it doesn't meet the two criteria
above, or (b) someone presents a compelling reason not to use it, or (c) I
get hip-deep and find a showstopper, in which case I'll go back to the
