Apologies to *Tolkien*?!?  I'm not sure I like the conjunction
between "PmWiki" and "shadows" -- PmWiki is supposed to bring
people out of darkness, not create it.  1/2 :-)

However, the verse is extremely clever.  :-)

"On the map"?

Gee, I thought PmWiki was already "on the map", or at least on
*a* map.

From Neil:

PmWiki is literally on the map!
Go to http://maps.google.com/
In the search box enter "PmWiki" 

Press Search

Bingo! In my search PmWiki showed up in ten places on the map.
