I'm a big +1 here. You know we have openliterature.net registered and
this wiki is already booted:

<http://wiki.openliterature.net/> -- thought we could just stick with
http://wiki.okfn.org/Open_Literature for the time being.

So I think we should definitely do this. We do want to think about how
this integrates going forward (e.g. do we merge
blog.openshakespeare.org into all of this or ...)
