Normally, I would disagree with cleaning up during a conversion: it is 
the number-one error to avoid. But in this case . . . if we can create a 
new page that says little more than, "See the wiki" . . .

Moving the wiki is going to be a bear. I can only help with the cleanup 
afterward, since that merely requires some OO.o familiarity, and modest 
Confluence skill.
