The extra baggage I was referring to was the config files, data
directory, underlay, requestCLI, etc.

I've looked in vain for a way to do this

from MoinMoin import moinToHtml

moinFormattedText ="""
== Some Moin Formatted Text ==

Para One

Para Two
html = moinToHtml(moinFormattedText)


I could even live with passing some extra parameters to moinToHtml in
order to configure it. I could even live with having to use StringIO to
convince it it's writing to files if necessary. Having to install a wiki
in order to do this seems excessive.

If anybody has done something similar I'd love to know.
