On the subject of the GUI editor, what are the principal technical issues with 
it? I've been in situations where people have either advocated turning it off 
or have actually done so because it isn't seen as being reliable enough, but 
is this due to the parsing and serialisation done by Moin itself, or the 
JavaScript editor's behaviour, or a combination of both? Anyone?

Maybe the "Delete Cache" action will delete the cache. I personally find 
caching to be somewhat opaque, although I have written code that uses caches 
and it actually works more or less as I expected.

For the standard searching, it probably only extends a "regex" search, but for 
Xapian-based searching it will actually search for specific category
