I think what MAL is saying is that you cannot have wiki.python.org/psf
point to one wiki, and wiki.python.org/ point to another one. If you
could, it would be ambiguous if wiki.python.org/psf/BoardAgenda
is a page in the PSF wiki, or in the Python Wiki.

I'm not sure whether URL stability has been discussed yet in this
thread: it's absolutely necessary that the existing URLs continue
to work "forever", since people are linking to them. Making them
redirect would be an option if implementable.
