Some simple rough mods to server.py to allow local edits -- start
server.py with an additional argument (a path to an existing
directory) and it'll save its results there.

Start it like

  ./server.py 8080 /home/martin/wikiedits

The server shows the changed files, which will go into a 'wiki'
subdirectory there.

You can check the edits thus:

  diff -ur /home/martin/wikiedits/wiki.orig /home/martin/wikiedits/wiki

And mergeupdates.py to... um, merge those updates

bzcat es_PE.xml.bz2.processed | tools/mergeupdates.py //wiki | bzip2
> es_PE.xml.bz2.processed.changed

You'll have to re-create the indexes (look at what woip/sh/process
does right after processing the file).
