I tried to clean this up a while ago by force on the server side (RewriteRule 
turning _2f to /), but it broke page editing.  A wiki that's not editable 
is... less than useful.

I'm aware of it though, it'll get cleaned up eventually.  In the meantime you 
can always publish your own URLs with the / manually substituted, it'll still 
work fine.
