Agree. I feel a bit reluctant to do that, seems like overkill.

I'd rather not move unless under extraordinary circumstances.
There is a wiki interface, but I like backups of my data too...

I'd rather simple solutions, since Lout is not a very 'busy'
project. Something that we can set up over a few weekends, then
update infrequently, would be nice.

SF uses only SSH, but if we are comfortable with SSH, then it's
okay for me. I just tested FileZilla/SFTP and it works, so all we
need to agree on is what to use to write and maintain a static site.

Let's see what the rest of the list thinks.
