Thinking about it some more, another problem with actions-stored-in-wikipages
is that they don't internationalize well, at least not in the current sense
of how we do i18n. I suppose an admin could easily edit the action
pages to translate the actions into the appropriate language, or that
we could provide PmWikiXx.Actions pages for each language, but somehow
it doesn't feel consistent with the current way we do i18n.
