Hmmm. If it is a longer HOWTO with just small version-specific
snippets, I agree with Karanbir that it would be nice to have some
indication at the top of the page. I user could instantly see that a
HOWTO contains instructions for, say CentOS 3 and 4, but not for 5.

How about making a comment marker (like ACLs) that contains this
version information, and letting MoinMoin expand it to some visual
marker at the top of the page. That would allow us to tinker with the
appearance in the future without having to change all pages.

(Yeah, I like metadata :p.)
