My approach has been to move deleted pages into a directory that isn't
within wiki.d/ .

Another option is to change permissions on the deleted/ subdirectory
to 700, so that the webserver doesn't have permission to read it.

Because of the ability to organize wiki.d/ into separate directories
for each group (as well as a lot of other organization possibilities),
I think we need to retain the setting to automatically search
subdirectories of wiki.d/, especially since there are a number of
other ways to prevent it from happening.
