Mediawiki hacking to make it self editable

Good documentation sometimes needs good style. Mediawiki (what powers wikipedia.org) is a great solution. Along with private SSL you can have a secure but fast documentation system anywhere in the world. By default Mediawiki will load CSS enteries from the Mediawiki: namespace. You can add overrides to these files to change the look or even add your own classes.
