I'm still somewhat confused by this -- is "requires a script"
versus "doesn't require a script" a major consideration for people
who are trying to figure out how to get PmWiki to do something?
How many people come to the Cookbook and say "I want to do XYZ with
PmWiki, but I want the answer with (or without) an extra script?"

I suspect the existence of a script is not an important criterion
for most searches.  As such, I think the organization needs
to be based on what will help people find the information most 
quickly and usefully, and not whether the solution happens to
involve the use of an extra script.
