Yeah, that's possible. I meant that a wiki itself, without some kind
of strong DB back-end to hook into, is a poor choice for database apps.

I'd like to see how you're doing it. Can't (yet ;-) envision a
powerful search/reference DB created from a bunch of interlinked wiki
pages. Is there a public URL for what's been done so far?
If this has been discussed/announced on the PCPlantDB list, then I've
somehow fallen off that list, as I've gotten no mail from it for months
I'd be up for contributing my QA/test skills. I'm not interested in
doing dev work with PHP/MySQL. Object publishing is the future... ;-)
