moin doesn't require tkinter, but python maybe does, depending on

Yes, you can do it that way, but you can do it in any other way, too. :)

The only important things are that the moin config and code is found 
(usually modify some sys.path line in the start script) and that you do 
NOT expose the data dirs on the web by the web server.

Try it. I prefer the wiki{1,2,3}.domain.tld form. I tried the path stuff 
once, but that was a year ago.

The underlay is intended to never get changed by the user, so you can 
just throw it away and copy a recent version from the dist archive.
