Just because this bugs me a bit... I have trouble imagining
using WikiSh on any site that allows a substantial number of
non-admins to edit pages.  I think it's just far too easy for

For a site that has a very small number of highly trusted
authors and where the entire site is locked down, WikiSh might
be okay.  But for any site where editing is distributed,
I'd be really concerned about (inadvertently) making WikiSh 
capabilities available to them.
