As far as I'm concerned IC 5.8 is the final branch of the IC 5.x series (rhino). Of course, patches and new features will be still added
if people care to supply and test them.

IC 6 is certainly incompatible to that (insects vs. mammals), unless someone writes Template::ITL :-).

Yes that's certainly a good idea and something I used to play around with. Text::WikiFormat and Wiki::Toolkit are CPAN contenders in this area.
