Unless I'm misunderstanding what we need here, Mediawiki Templates
aren't quite what we want: we want something more akin to Templates in
Word, where you 'clone' the template and then edit it to what you want.
Mediawiki templates require passing in arguments to the call to them,
which isn't really suitable for large clumps of text.
We might be better installing one of these:
These would allow us to create a little 'form' that people can type into
when proposing a feature, that will then create the relevant wiki page.
