I am all for it, and want to propose it to board.
But for doing this right we should have a way to evaluate it before jumping in.
It would be good if you can bring us the proposal for such
integration, which describing the state-of-art of aida blog engine,
and different ways how we could install/use it.

I agree with Davorin, that in a way for promoting squeak/smalltalk its
important to show the technology which can deliver goods, especially
main squeak sites, such as squeak.org, board blogs etc.
