Two things here:

The conversor is one way only: to CWiki. Conversion is known to be imperfect
and a lot of content would be lost. OTOH, it is also understood that a lot of
MWiki content is obsolete and needs to be cleaned out anyway.

For conversion of the math stuff the documentation of the plugin states that
CWiki could be helped by the use of a latex plugin.

From a licensing perspective the MWiki content is a can of worms.
This may or may not be important as this is not included in releases
but the general consensus was to keep the MWiki content contained
and only accept ALv2 content from now on.

There is also a huge -1 in the current MWiki for me: if MWiki is
here to stay ldap access must be enabled so that committers
have access to it without opening a new account.

Just thought I'd point those things out :)
