JSON objects can be loaded from anywhere, really. And since I can  
pipe the wiki stream through any server, that can be loaded from  
anywhere as well. The wiki information IS stored at  
manual.dojotoolkit.org, but I was planning on making it more like a  
static version of the doc tool than anything else. Apparently though,  
everything I've been planning doesn't really matter right now, so  
I'll default to Alex on this.
