Locally-stored apps are a different story. But I don't necessarily see
TiddlyWiki (or similar apps) as working that way. It currently has to
be saved to a local HTML file because its only mechanism for saving
content is to self-modify its source. With HTML5 persistent storage,
there's no reason it couldn't live on a server like tiddlywiki.com.
With app-caching support too, it would work offline just as well as
the current version does.
