I strongly agree (well I guess that's obvious from my other posts :-).

If there's a particular page you think is valuable on the old wiki, which
doesn't exist in some form on the new wiki, then maybe transfer it
(converting the markup is actually fairly simple with sed and some emacs
macros), but I think it would a very good idea to give it a good rethink
first (page location, contents, up-to-dateness, etc).

This obviously makes such moves harder -- but in fact I think that's _good_,
it'll keep out the chaff.  The new wiki seems to be quickly coming up to
speed, so I think there's no danger of lack of content.

Everything else, well... given the wad-of-hair structure, people probably
couldn't find it anyway...
