I have a start on a wiki syntax exporter that I took by modifying the
latex exporter (some wikis have quite extensive markup).

Here's what I would like to suggest:

1.  There are an infuriatingly large number of different wiki syntaxes.
 I'd like to suggest that we should avoid having to write a zillion
different standalone exporters.

2.  Emacs lisp doesn't have object-oriented programming to help with
this, but we can simulate it with tables of functions.  So, for example,
we could have vectors with entries for functions that format italicized
text for media-wiki, tiki wiki, etc.

3.  A first job would be to make a list of all of the kinds of export
that we see in the latex exporter, and define a structure that provides
entries for all of these export types.

If we do the above, we can hijack the top-level export routine from,
e.g., latex export, and then plug in different tables for the different
wikis.

Feel free to contact me off-line about this; I would be more than happy
to work with you on it.

Best,
Robert
