I doubt it's practical to run 1.3 alongside 1.5. uses
mod_python, so unless the MoinMoin developers changed their software's
package name from 'MoinMoin' to something version specific like
'MoinMoin15', I think the Apache processes would get confused.  

Easier just to upgrade all the existing Wikis to 1.5, I think.  I'll
raise a flag about this; maybe it can get done over the weekend.

Um... yeah, but how?  We can group pages into folders ('Doc/whatever',
'SuccessStories/Whatever'), and then say it'll retrieve 'Doc/Sidebar'
for the sidebar.  But how could a particular page add more stuff to
the sidebar?  Maybe some kind of '#sidebar-links' directive that pulls
in a third wiki page, or maybe a separate page that associates page
titles with sidebars.
