Comment(by martin.langhoff):

 Welcome to the fray, rmo! Agreed, the old mwlib we use is problematic.

 If you are diving into wikiserver, the best approach I suspect is to look
 at replacing all the old, crufty and horrendously patched mwlib with a
 current mwlib from upstream.

 Current mwlib upstream seems to have evolved into a pretty flexible
 toolkit, so what we had to patch before can probably be done in a much
 more elegant and maintainable way. And mwlib keeps up with Wikipedia dump
 formats and all.

 I am not sure if the mwlib compression + index + search scheme is good
 enough for us. Hopefully it is, and we can leave behind the unmaintained
 code we use now.

 Thanks for looking into this!
