To clarify, check one:

[ ] A. You already have mediawiki wiki running on a web server; but, you
	would prefer to have your wiki power by Python.

[ ] B. You already have mediawiki running on a web server and you have
	another wiki powered by Python; and, you would like to take the
	information from the python powered wiki and copy it to the

[ ] C. You already have mediawiki running on a web server and you would
	also like to use the functionality of a wiki which is written in
	Python.  Somehow, you would like to somehow access some of the
	Python's functionality and use it from inside of mediawiki.
	Perhaps making them work side by side.

[ ] D. You already have mediawiki running on a webserver; but, you would

	direct database access to; so, you would like to write a script in

	database used by the wikimedia server.  You would like a Python
	script to convert/scrap the data.

[ ] F. Other
