Well that would be a lot of work (either reimplementing the parser of
pmwiki or somehow interfacing that part of pmwiki's code).

My idea was that of the spider was that it only should be used (widely)
by some gNewsense team in a maner similar to what you proposed.

In that case writing a parser for a specific wiki-engine is even more
of a unnecessary and hard task.

So in effect I choose to write a spider (that I have written most of
only last night).

A sample of the current implementation could be seen here:

Its currently only of depth one (it just downloads pages that
are linked on HomePage), and links to non-english pages wont work yet.
