Off list, I've asked you, if links referring to a page are updated when the 
page is renamed. You wrote No, they aren't. They will point to a non-existent 

I assume that this also applies to the RenamePage command of the package 

The way I want to use MoinMoin, I expect that I want to rename pages 
frequently. My enthusiasm of MoinMoin is fading...

I wonder if I could write a program for renaming pages, which directly 
manipulated the MoinMoin (file system) database. Would this be safe, if you 
stopped Apache before, and restarted it afterwards? What about Xapian? 
Anything else?
