Is there a reason that server admins would have to chown the wiki.d
directories? The intent of PmWiki's installation sequence is that
wiki.d and upload directories can be created without server admin
intervention--why would this need to be different in the case of a farm?

Could you briefly describe what sorts of issues you had with your
previous webhost and the wiki.d directory? Was it simply that they
had a policy against directories/files being owned by the webserver,
or was it that you were having to get them to perform chown/chmod
operations on your behalf because it wasn't working via the pmwiki
scripts for some reason?
