You may find my EditTitle recipe helpful here, which adds a Title
field to the edit form. It should serve your need for a subject field
just fine. As a matter of fact, the label can be easily changed for
the field. And seeing PmWiki already has (:title:) markup which
EditTitle uses, that keeps things simple. Even if you don't use what I
have done exactly, feel free to draw ideas from my code.
