I've done it before -- I have a start at converting UseMod pages
(http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/ConvertUseMod), but I'm still
having trouble with converting UseMod's subpages. However, I should
be able to make a converter for PhpWiki without any problem.
As I recall, PhpWiki had (or once had) an "export" option that would
let an admin export the pages to a set of files (for backup/restores
and other purposes) -- if you can get me a copy of whatever PhpWiki
exports I should be able to write a PhpWiki importer fairly quickly.
