Wikis traditionally don't deal well with metadata like categories,
which just sticks out all the more in the case of a wiki like moin
that supports multiple syntaxes and editors.

I'd be really happy with a moin that took metadata out of the text
area and provided separate fields for it, especially if internal APIs
were provided for extensions to make effective use of the information
as well.

I can't really complain, though, since wikis are generally a "good
enough" solution.  If the status quo really weren't good enough, I'd
find an open source wiki and create a patch.  (No, I've not, and not
for lack of a moin to work with!)
