MoinMoin's wiki is too simple that all these things are not done in a
way that makes it easy to setup. Ie. any similar type of setup requires
working around its limitations (possible but messy). What I am working
on is a wiki that would be integrated with the website
(*hint*plone*hint*) ;)

While many may suggest different wiki alternatives, I am not going to go
through the hell of migration without considering how we are going to be
migrating to something else for our website at the same time.
