Probably the best idea. I think most contributors will be developers

This means we should remove the tutorial from Mediawiki and use a
generated version (somewhere). Any objections? And where do we
generate it? I can do it on one of my machines, for now.

That is (yet) another wiki formatter. There is a Ruby implementation
here: http://redcloth.org/. We would also have to look at colored code
output, I think.

The current Tutorial.rd has multiple outputs. Where do we want to go
with this? The same holds for RubyInAnger.

Comments, decisions, please.
