Once I have more time to figure out who to annoy in order to get privs
to clean out the wiki without having to clean each user and page one at
a time, I will do that.

For now, though, I have replaced the pm-utils wiki with a lightly-edited
version of the HTML source of the wiki frontpage.  Since the frontpage
was the only page in the entire wiki that was actually relavent to the
pm-utils project, it should do for now.

People with fd.o accounts and rights to the pm-utils website can still
make any changes needed -- /srv/pm-utils.freedesktop.org/www is under
git revision control for edit tracking purposes.
