Just a note:
We have a patch for issue 1 (page saves).
Issue 3 (searches) might be fixed when moin eventually releases their
next version.
Issue 4 (categories) could be fixed with a patch similar to #1.

To me, the primary problem with Moin has been our inability to get
upstream interested in our problems and willing to accept patches from
us.  A secondary problem has been that upstream's release schedule just
keeps slipping.

MrBawb has recently taken up the task of trying to get our patch for #1
accepted upstream.  If he's successful then that's a good step towards
resolving our primary problem.

The second problem boils down to whether we're comfortable patching our
install with things we know are upstream but may not make it out until
they accumulate the will to put out a new release.
