[Seaside] Gardner, SmallWiki, Swiki, or?

The version of SmallWiki that Chris ported and that I worked on looks 
like it's newer than the one Gardner was using.  It seems to handle 
nested lists just fine.  So, I think it's probably the newer parser.  My 
monticello based version and the SmallWiki package on SqueakMap both 
have this newer looking parser.
