PmWiki's built-in robot control does this by default -- of course,
by the time PmWiki gets around to it some of the expense (loading
and compiling the php scripts) has already taken place, which is why
having it in the webserver config is a bit better.  But even leaving it
for PmWiki to handle is still much better than rendering pages or
retrieving page data that isn't going to be used.  :-)
