This is a feature of Moin that is configurable - does CamelCase get 
interpreted as a link? The rest of Apache has it switched on.

But it is odd how it works. JXTemplateGenerator will only see 
TemplateGenerator as the link without the JX. It is going to be tough 
just using this, as even when we've done the conversion people are going 
to be inadvertently adding CamelCase to their new Wiki pages.

I guess I can give my regexp skills another test to see if I can come up 
with a CamelCase detector, but I'm a little reluctant. Is it really
