I don't think we should change defaults within a stable release series.
But we can change how example configs look like and document stuff better.

I wouldn't recommend this patch until someone cleans it up (see my
comments there), does more testing and reviews the code again.

Good writeup, should be supplemented with a modified default wiki/farm
One can add to regularly review logs, esp. after spam gets in. So one
can sometimes identify static IP addrs only used for spamming (put them
in moin's hosts_deny or handle via web server) and also textchas that
have been broken and should be replaced.
