maybe you could expand on that, or rather, clarify this description
$WorkDir This variable is a string that gives a local path to a directory
where the pmwiki engine can create temporary files etc. PmWiki needs
this for a variety of things, such as building merged edits, caching
mailposts entries, keeping track of the last modification time of the
site, other types of cache, etc. Do not confuse this variable with
$WikiDir; the reason that both $WorkDir and $WikiDir refer by default to
the directory wiki.d/ is merely to simplify things for the
that I've added to http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/OtherVariables
I guess maybe less emphasis should be given on
... can create temporary files etc.
