Hi there Happy-melon (great handle, btw).
Its not quite that straightforward. We have met with Wikia folks and
they've acknowledged that it will be a fair bit of work to adapt it to
our uses. Wikia has offered us engineering resources to assist this
effort. As I say, we are planning to investigate further in the coming
months and of course we'll disclose our findings.

Just noting that we at WMF have been talking to
Wikia about taking a
look at their code to see if it can be made useful for WMF properties.
Expect to hear more about Rich Text Editing soonish.
What are we expecting to hear from them? The code is open source and
available in a SVN repo; the only challenge is working out exactly how it
differs from MW trunk and why. I can see how some information (like which
revision it was branched from) could be more easily obtained from asking
rather than playing with svn merge, but are they likely to commit real
man-hours into making these features trunk-friendly?
