You've put in more than your fair share of work for this release (which I
greatly appreciate); why don't you take some time off?  I don't want you
to get burned out. ;-)

Regarding cookies and JS, FossWiki apparently requires those two
mechanisms for security reasons.  The developers of that software have
listed the possible attack vectors and how they are shielded against on
their website.  I haven't looked closely at any of the details myself, but
I gather that there is no good way to use only cookies and still block the
attack vectors.

Thanks for all you help thus far!
