Your question has thrown me into a quandary.  I had not seen Wikipedia
before.  It is so close in spirit and function to the new FOLDOC
software I am working on that I am wondering whether I should continue
with FOLDOC at all or whether I shouldn't just redirect all effort to
Wikipedia.  Can you think of any reason to keep it seperate?

In the short term, I am more than happy for you to add FOLDOC's
content to Wikipedia and hereby release it under GNU FDL.
