How about I make a module that uses post_content or whatever the on page
change hook is and FTP the new page content out to you?  That, or I can
make it post to a script on your side.

Alternately, PGP encrypt it and email it to you.  Or one of any number of
other things... but it's pretty easy to write a change push plugin for the
system.  Just let me know what works for you.

I already made it so that if something is all capitals it doesn't get
auto-linked, and I suppose I could turn off the linking of camel-case
words and force everybody to use the {word} format.

This should be on a namespace-by-namespace basis, that way you can
configure it for your own area.

I like that idea... I'll work on it and let you know.

Thanks for the feedback!
