It might not answer the specific wish I was writing about but it looks a
highly useful project. I don't know much about Wiki's but that's no
reason not to start showing an interest.

Cheers,

Probably not what you are looking for but I'm currently in the process
of writing a suite of scripts to export sector information with Wikia
formating in my spare time. Not much done just yet but you can see the
first script output and grab a copy of it

http://astrocollab.wikia.com/wiki/Astrosynthesis_Collaboration_Project_W
iki

Right now all it does is export the system names wiki links to a text
file. You copy and paste that into the Wikia editor and it sets up
blank pages for the next script I'm writing.

The script should work with any mediawiki.
