I just tested it on my local webserver because I didn't have a public
webserver handy where I could easily make this change.  But it should
work on any Apache-based installation.

Yes, for those sites running Apache 2.0 or higher.

They're represented as http://wiki.somewhere.org/Main/HomePage .

Probably, although that page is getting a bit long.  Since there are
quite a number of different setup possibilities developing, we may need
to refactor the topic into several pages, which could go either in the
PmWiki documentation or else in the Cookbook.  

I'm still working on the mod_redirect form of implementing this.
