Hi all,

thanks for the reply, Alexander. (And, I realized I sent my reply to 
Nir's previous response privately by accident, so, thanks Nir, too.)

This is the first I've heard of MMDE. So, yes, the normal package.

No bug report needed, I think. I posted in a bit of a panic over the 
giant delay the first time I tried :-)

I've culled all non-English system pages. Now, the first time in a 
moin.py session I click on a title for the backlinks, it takes a bit 
long for a result, but it isn't glacial. Subsequent attempts work 
quick enough. (From just testing, 17.74 seconds for the first request, 
and subsequent request cluster around 1.5 s.)

So, thanks for the help.

Best to all,

Brian vdB
