I do not want the discussion to go to wit, at least not in its
current form. Wit has lots and lots of good ideas (all praise to its
maker!) but in the current form at least it is unbearably
cumbersome to use.

OK. Spell out what is wrong with it and what fixes it requires.

It would be very interesting to use a structured discussion system
such as WIT aspires to be. But WIT is not ready for use.

Again specifics. if you want a system ready for use, you have
to come up with specific improvements it needs.

On the other hand - you want to discuss things there, go ahead. It's a
free country --- ooops I mean free Internet.
