[Seaside] Gardner, SmallWiki, Swiki, or?

That's how I would lean...though I really wish the SmallWiki on 
SqueakMap was in Monticello format (pester Chris about that).  I 
wouldn't rule out Gardner though...down the road it may have some 
advantages being built on top of Seaside (and plugging in the newer 
parser is pretty trivial work).  It'll probably be easy to migrate a 
wiki back and forth between Gardner and SmallWiki since I think they use 
the same DOM in addition to the parser.
