No such code currently exists, but either approach isn't too hard. If
you have a git clone of the wiki, you can look for all files that don't
have a '.mdwn' extension, then look at what directory they're in, which
indicates what page they were attached to.

I'd argue that our wiki is a tool for managing a normal web site, and
normal web sites do not have "attachments". All content ought to be
explicitly linked if it's to be found by casual browsers. We can do some
one-off shell scripting to make sure everything is linked though.

Yes, but it's either a MoinMoin bug or a bug in my MoinMoin
implementation of TWiki markup. "---+" became "<h0>" there, which isn't
even valid HTML. See the FlightComputerSoftware page for a better
example of the problem.

In short, the converted result is better than the original. :-)
