My feeling is that, in absence of people willing to backport fixes
(even if there are some now, I can't imagine this being the case for
much longer), the best solution would be to just update Moin to the
latest version.

Yeah, this could be fairly painful.  I've tried to do the 1.5 to 1.6
migration a couple times and it's never worked right without manual
intervention and cleanups later. :(

I know EPEL likes to be a slow moving target and maintain stability as
much as possible.. but sometimes this has to be balanced against
reality :)
