what do you think about some of these possibilities?

space saving things would be:
 * use icons (moinmoin did already i think)
 * search field like http://www.jspwiki.org/
 * table of contents like http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:dokuwiki
 * small trail font like in http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:dokuwiki

or rearranging things a little, which would save 2 lines:

logo -- <user> - preferences - logout -- [xxxx] title text FindPage
logo -- <pagename> -- edit - info - subscribe
logo -- <trail>

 * "moinmoin" is gone and replaced by clicking on logo with meaningful
alternate text
 * page actions line is shifted beside page name
 * wiki actions line is gone and shifted to the top two lines
 * quick links would have to be placed somewhere. maybe an auto-opening menu
   or a separate line? configurable.

then there could be a line with user defined links, maybe an included
page with links. this page could be included in a number of similar
pages and create something like a "space" just by similar look.
