Yes you are right!

What I like wit WkiWorks is that we have meaningfull reference
like stef+fun+squeak

what I would like to know if thereis a possibility to merge two wikis
Or to have one wki synchonzed with another one. 
For example  have one on my local machine and one main server then when 
I connect Iwould like that the change I made on y local one are transported
to the server one: tell me if there are some conflicts.
