HI Martin

Actually I had used the discussion plugin in an earlier version of my
own dokuwiki, before I setup a real blog. I wanted to use this plugin to
mimick a blog inside the wiki.
It did not work out well, my blog posts got scrambled when I updated the
dokuwiki core software. That may not have been the plugin's fault but I
never checked.

What I really wanted to say is: the discussion plugin could break the
separation between the article and the talk page like we have now. The
discussion must _never_ be appended after the Wiki article. Discussions
should be held in the "talk" pages. Just like you pointed out.

I have imported the plugin and setup an example here:
http://docs.slackware.com/talk:wiki:user:alienbob . Feel free to
experiment and I'll let the staff editors decide if they want to
encourage this for official pages (there is of course no objection
against adding it to your private talk page in wiki:user:yourname).
