This is the moin utility, not the standalone server.

The standalone server script is moin.py in the toplevel directory of the 
distribution archive.

Well, the docs are in a wiki on http://master.moinmo.in. :)

If you want to do bigger changes there, please first join us on #moin 
IRC channel to discuss about it.

BTW, in 1.6 you can just invoke moin.py from the toplevel dir and it 
will work.
