Not yet at least. I think there simply wasn't much need / demand yet.

Python is easy, you can simply modify the fragments in wikiutil.py. And 
most of the stuff is even overrideable via moin_config.py (see the docs 
and the default values of these settings in config.py).

There are some moins out there running with modified design, maybe ask 
them before doing much work.

Maybe this is one advantage of PHPWiki.

MoinMoin has many other advantages (see recent post here of sb else).

Juergen has already plans for templates.

Personally, I don't need them very much, I'm more interested in some 
functionality than in design.
