Mediawiki Email interface

It's quite strange that there isn't an email interface to mediawiki / wikipedia. Some related discussion here. http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Client

I am convinced that somebody must have written an email interface, but it's just that I haven't found this. In the meantime, I've created a very basic email interface for the OER wiki: http://oerwiki.iiep-unesco.org . This is highly experimental, and I may not keep this running beyond the current Access2OER discussion on the UNESCO mailing list (cf. http://oerwiki.iiep-unesco.org/index.php?title=Access2OER) but you can access the interface by emailing

oerwiki (then the at sign, followed by) ict4e.net

Btw. it's a read-only interface. In many ways it thus doesn't offer great advantages over a generic web-to-email service. Of course really one would want a write interface too!
