I am conflicted about the general idea of supporting both wikitext and
visual editing for the same text, but nevertheless, this is an
interesting project, and I like the prototype visual editing.

Here's the demo, where you can edit some canned texts (but not actual 
Wikipedia articles, yet):

And here's the blog post, which puts it more in context.

This new editor was mostly written by Trevor Parscal and Inez 
Korczyński, although lots of others have contributed. I've sat a desk 
away from them for a few months and I have to say I'm extremely 
impressed with what they've put together. If you're expecting Google 
Docs, we're not there yet. But the basics are starting to solidify, and 
it's getting easier and easier to add cool features.

Hey MediaWiki developers, surely you're not going to let Trevor and Inez 
have *all* the fun?
