Sanboxes IMO have an implicit "this is not baked yet" or "this is  
experimental" or "i'm playing around".  The content in the KB however  
is just stuff that does not fit well into other more specific spaces.

I think the effort is equal.  Both involve editing each page and  
changing the space and/or parent.

Thought... the added overhead of managing the spaces themselves  
starts to become a burden.  Generally I recommend keeping pages into  
a centralized space until the content warrants its own space, or the  
space is needed to avoid name collisions.

I forget, but I think that there is a tool to pull full page dumps of  
the wiki content.  Or if you know where the files live, you can copy  
them from the text dir.

I'd start with the moinmoin.rb importer that is here:

And see what it imports into a personal Confluence install (w/ RPC  

That will probably get the content close, then if needed we can hack  
the .rb to clean it up more, and then add any finishing touches by hand.
