If you didn't install the MoinMoin software to the default place using 
setup.py, you either have to go into the directory in which the 
MoinMoin/ directory is contained or add some sys.path.insert statement 
in the code or use some PYTHONPATH(?) Environment variable.

For most commands, you need to specify --config and --wiki-url options, 
so it finds your config and knows which of your wikis to operate on.
