If you don't munge the addresses in the wiki.d/ files, then address
harvesters can grab the cleartext addresses via ?action=edit or
?action=source (unless you have those password protected somehow).
Or, you have to be sure to munge them when displaying those forms,
which basically amounts to same thing as munging them in the wiki.d/
