Here is an extension of the Perl Golf idea: There is a shortest
wiki contest over on 


The current winner is SigWiki (4 lines and 222 chars of Perl and
Shell). Interestingly the 5 shortest entries are in Perl on Perl.
The 6th shortest entry is WyPy in Python (11 lines and 814 chars
of Python).

It seems to me that if a wiki can be written in 4 lines and 222
chars it must be possible to write it in 4 lines and 221 chars.
