To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure we need to worry about it until the
actual release (even them I'm not sure we'll need to).  The wiki's
internal caching and mod_cache seem to be useful enough together (yet a
pain for some other things) that for anonymous users it'll be cached

We now have 3 machines handling wiki data, and it is from a fairly
powerful DB, so where the caching doesn't help the backend should be
able to pull the weight.

When making changes to the page, you'd need to go to (I'm 99% sure that this will work for all users).

Basically it'll wipe the MW cache etc and display the fresh copy.

I think this would be a rather interesting experiment and I am sure that
Mediawiki will pass with flying colours :).  And well, if it does turn
out we need to use static pages, then it's not that hard to do :).
