Normally I just rename the file(s).  This does mean that some of the
internal references may be incorrect (e.g., for backlinks),
but PmWiki automatically corrects things as each page is edited and
saved.  (And I don't worry that RecentChanges has links to non-existent
pages -- it's the same as if they were deleted and recreated in the
new name.)

I'm still wanting to add a "rebuild" function that allows pages
to be re-indexed in bulk; I just haven't gotten around to it yet.
(It's never been an issue for me.)
