Renaming pages in wiki.d/ isn't too big a problem for PmWiki.  
Sometimes the .pageindex file gets out of sync, so after
renaming or manipulating the files in wiki.d/ it's often a
good idea to remove wiki.d/.pageindex (PmWiki will rebuild it
automatically over time).

If the Site.* pages are to be renamed, then set $SiteGroup in
local/config.php to point to the new group for these pages.

    $DefaultGroup = 'Mike';
