mixed static and wiki content at the top-level without leaking much
implementation detail into the URL. I'll be the first to admit I didn't
have a minimal set of clean rewrite rules to accomplish this, but it did
I've been trying to get that same thing working now with moin rather
than twiki, (and in a cleaner way so tat I could recommend it for
non-cairo uses). Moin makes it harder since it insists on generating
absolute links, (and that's not trivial to fix I found). I'm still
planning to spend a bit more time on the issue soon though.
