Yeah, thought of it.  I think I want a little more than what a wiki provides, 
though - download counts, etc.  'Course, I could just be showing my ignorance 
there. =)

What would be ideal for you, then?

While I initially want something fairly simple, I'd like the _option_ to have 
a more complex site.  Much of the reason that the current website is so 
simple is due to almost everything in phpnuke being turned off due to 
security flaws.

I got an offer from someone (jams on the #mythtv channel) to do a mockup using 
mambo(? I think).  I'd like to keep a somewhat similar look to the website - 
I kinda like the blue/grey. =)
