[Moin-user] InterWikiMap

I'm using MoinMoin 1.5.4 .

I can't seem to figure out how to define my own Moin instance-specific 
list of InterWiki monikers.

I thought I'd understood from 
http://moinmaster.wikiwikiweb.de/InterWikiMap , and from the example of 
http://wiki.python.org/moin/InterWikiMap , that I could just create a page 
named InterWikiMap in wiki A like so (I'll just refer to it as "wiki A" 
rather than using its real name, to protect the guilty):

#format plain

RFC http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc
MoinMoin http://moinmoin.wikiwikiweb.de/
ReportLabInternal https://admin.reportlab.com/rl-wiki/

Wiki A is a different wiki than ReportLabInternal (and both are MoinMoin 

But that doesn't doesn't seem to do what I expected from the docs: when I 
then create an InterWiki link to ReportLabInternal, say 
wiki:ReportLabInternal:ReportLabHome, I see an interwiki-style link 
display (with the little icon of two faces to the left of the link), but 
the link target is always the same:


where https://admin.reportlab.com/a-wiki/ is the base URL of wiki A.

I interpret this to mean that MoinMoin is trying to tell me that it 
doesn't recognise "ReportLabInternal" as a wiki moniker.  But I'm not sure 
what I need to do to get it recognised, if I don't want to edit the master 
list on our server, or if I want the list of monikers to be 
instance-specific (or if I just like the idea of maintaining the 
instance's list of InterWiki monikers as a wiki page -- which I do).
