Hmm, let's see.  Counting the number of items currently in use in the
SGML docs, there's:
 * Paragraphs
 * Headlines
 * Bulleted lists
 * Numbered lists
 * Cross references to other doc pages
 * Links to pages outside WineHQ

And probably a couple others.
Any Wiki has those too, just in a different (also ASCII-based) syntax.

I hereby volunteer to write a parser that eats MoinMoin (or whatever)
and spits out SGML to use in the conversion process.  Problem solved? 
I hope so, but please feel free to try and prove me wrong ;-).

Let me know what's desirable and I'll whip something up.

If anyone has the time, here's a dumb newbie that'd love to be
enlightened..  Why?
