Bliki, Wiki, Chiki, Reeky?

Russell has put a weblog front end on this SimpleWeb Wiki software. SimpleWeb is the software that runs Russell's SimpleFace user interface design and usability website. I think every Wiki should have a weblog like front-end, it draws you in and helps to build the community spirit of the site. But, should every weblog have an integrated Wiki? That is a different question. I did a little googling and found that people have been discussing the weblog-wiki intersection for some time now.
I don't agree with Russell's point that blog enties just disappear when they roll off the page. The couple blog entries in the list above are proof that entries live a long life. Google, good site search, and full-screen calendars keep those old posts alive.

Seems to me that integrating a Wiki into Roller would be pretty easy.  All Roller would need are some nice macros for displaying and linking to the Wiki pages. Am I missing something here?  Is there more to it than that?  More importantly, would it be feature bloat or useful stuff?

SimpleFace goes to manywhere now, and 'big changes' are announced. Implementation mentioned in opening paragraph moved, or gone.
