I think that'll be quite painful, as you have to move *all* pages and
have to touch *each* link (afaics moving pages doesn't update references
to the pages).

The wiki doesn't know about 404. If you encounter a page which isn't
there you get the option to create that page. So a 404 will never be

You'd have to have all pages in $LANGUAGE then (meaning mirror them into
