This is an oddity actually.

http://www.kinhost.org/wiki/Main/ManualTOC -- table of contents of a  

ALL pages (with a few exceptions) are in a single group (Main --  
which is my bad from when I set it up ;) ).  The TOC was hand- 
written, but it does NOT give the impression that PmWiki has only 2  
levels of pages.

You could create your own heirarchy:


It doesn't matter if you name it:

Or if you have a completely arbitrary heirarchy like I do on my wiki  
(linked above).

It is only really limited if you think in a limiting way.  Some  
people really do want 3 levels or more and aren't willing to play  
with naming groups and pages to create a human-readable heirarchy.   
I'm sure that more levels could open up a few interesting  
possibilities at the expense of complicating the program.  The  
technical end is limited -- everything before / is a "Group" and  
everything after / is the page name.  I've seen some incredibly LONG  
page names, so I'm not sure if there's a particular length limit to  
the names.

New wildcard search capabilities and data storage abilities open up  
more possibilities for organizing Group/PageName searches and data,  
automated listings, etc.  The system is very flexible.
