Hmm. Couldn't you just ask us to pull an X-Wing out of the swamp?

Q: How to convert other wiki markups for PmWiki. This cookbook does
not interpret other markups, it is a framework to translate them to
PmWiki markup instantly.

A: Wikimarkupconversion.php . . . At the moment there is only one
wikitype (MediaWiki)

Of course, you will want a wrapper script that will pull pages out of
Ye Olde Database and write the wikipages. Then there's the fact that
PmWiki has groups.
