Integrate Etherpad to work together on Wiki drafts and export them to a Wiki article

Connections is currently very limited in terms of shared work on a document. There's just docs, which require ODT files. Sadly we don't have many advantages of wikis here, mainly versions with diff.

Etherpad https://etherpad.org/ is an open source tool that fit into this gap: We could easily work with multiple people on the same document in parallel. This is perfect when in draw mode. But after finishing, we'd like to export the document in a Connections Wiki page.

Using the HTML export from Etherpad, I could download a html file and copy the content in the html view of the Editor. This works well, but requires a lot of manual work that is not suiteable for end users.

So please integrate Connections into Etherpad, so that customers could setup Etherpad and do a seamless export to Connections. It would be also nice to have Etherpad as some kind of app in Connections that saves drafts to the Community. This is usefull when the draft is more complex and required for multiple days before it could be exported to a wiki.
