If Ben was not faster again, i think it is only set up for the forum
yet :P But good thing is the forum and the wikis are hosted on the
same server, so even the db parts might not be a big problem.

One thing that shouldn't be forgotten though. Our current RSS feeds
for the forum are also hacked and use the current search system, so it
is possible to have feeds based on topic/post, author, tags, etc
The result should also be usable as feed.
