Sorry for a small hijack - :)
That kind of brings me to a critical question -- wikis are useful for
slightly less formal documenting ( collaborative ) is there anything
that allows formal production of such ad-hoc content ?

e.g this scenario -  Some company allows its developers to create a
wiki and disparately document its project. is it possible at a later
point of time to collate such content easily and churn out a formal
documentation ?  What tools will aid this process ?
is there something that lets me take such wiki snippets and churn out
a professional tex doc in a easy fashion :) ?

regards,
C
