The difficulty I'm seeing is that it takes too long to review

My connection is very fast.  One problem is that I'm used
to quick iterations, and the time to save on the wiki is
lots longer than the time it takes to save in vi.

I've often wished for a hybrid wiki that let users
edit it using traditional tools (e.g. svn and vi) in
addition to the live web update.  Haven't had time
to look into it, though.  I actually did a wiki-like
system back in 1994 that had some of those
features - guess I should have kept at it!
