Reasonable PageNames are key to this.

MoinMoin is on the way to produce xml AFAIK, but that's not in time for FC4.

It would be really helpful to have a recent MoinMoin installation on 
fedoraproject.org, this would reduce some work needed (it produces [almost] 
valid html) and is IMHO much more easy to use. (see Linuxwiki.org for
