I think Moin has a problem with the generated syntax, and I'll try and figure 
out what that problem is because I think I've seen it elsewhere.

Yes, pages with question marks won't be served because of the mod_rewrite bug, 
but I can assure you they are still there. I'll try and get my hosting 
provider to suggest an alternative, but the preferred way of serving the 
pages wouldn't suffer from this.

The %-encoding for spaces can be avoided by using underscores instead, which 
Moin recognises as being equivalent and which helps quite a bit. Short links 
could be done with redirect pages, and there may be some things that help 
with this, but I don't recall seeing anything specific.
