I'm using Moin 1.34 or so. I'd like to know what the possibilities are
for using categories to give the reader of a page information about the
page. It's a documentation wiki so key things to tell the user would be:

1. What version of the software does this page apply to?
2. How reliable is this page?

I'd like to use Categories to do this for the simple reason that it is
very easy to tag a page with a category using the drop down menu when
saving a page, readers can do it...

So, what I'd like to see is:

1. User marks page as CategoryVersion1.0
2. Page then automatically contains a little box at the top which says
something like "This page applies to Version 1.0 of SoftwareName"

If a page is tagged with CategoryVersion1.0 and CategoryVersion2.0, the
box should say "This page applies to Version 1.0 and Version 2.0 of
SoftwareName", or similar.

Equally, tagging the page with CategoryNeedsReview would make a box at
the top of the page appear which says "This page has been marked as
Needs Review because it has not yet been reviewed by the wiki editors".
Tagging the page with CategoryCleanup would make a box at the top of the
page which says "To meet quality standards, this page may require some
attention. To discuss issues with this page, contact XYZ". This latter
feature is something wikipedia does really well

Is there already a feature in Moin that does something similar to what
I've described? If there isn't, can you give me any pointers to how it
might be implemented, or who might help with this? I think it would be a
really good feature.
