Hi David,

I second Matthew on this.  All the wiki-like features you mentioned can
be "emulated" with Emacs + Org-mode + a distributed versioning system.

As far as communication is concerned (i.e. your idea of people talking
to each others thru org-mode pages) I think it is possible to hook some
scripts to your "git push" command, then let the scripts decide whether
they should send an email to someone or not

Simple example: when pushing changes on a page where you are not the
main author (i.e. not in the #+AUTHOR line), send an email to these
author about the change.  I'm sure Bernt can write such a script :)

The idea of communication only with org-mode files, I don't get it.
Email is powerful, why don't use it?  Same for the HTML output of
org-mode+git pages, I don't see why we should live without it.

In any case, I would be delighted to see Worg clones, exploring
org-mode+git possibilities way beyond Worg!
