not completly wrong ;)  you could a) use a user object and migrate to
your wiki by cli or b) use xmlrpc to send content to the remote wiki.

For a) you may be interested in
 * http://moinmo.in/MoinAPI/Beispiele#user.User.name (if you want to
have a user set this to request.user)

and for b) in
 * http://moinmo.in/MoinAPI/Beispiele#xmlrpc
