I'd also like to second the need to turn off CamelCase recognition.

That is only acceptable if such parser were maintained as part
of the official moin distribution, and kept up-to-date with the
the rest of the features of a classical parser.

I had enough bad experience with unmaintained third-party macros
and themes, that I would not dare to venture into a third-party
parser without some firm statement that I won't be left high-and-dry
with the next release of moin.

Perhaps adding an option to "#format wiki" or some other pragma,
which could tell the official parser whether to recognize
camel case or not.
