clozure.com (which is the same physical machine as
openmcl.clozure.com) is a somewhat underpowered Celeron running
FreeBSD 5.4.  The versions of some of the installed packages are
typically a year or two older than the current versions; IIRC, the
installed version of MoinMoin wasn't officially supported under
FreeBSD.  (It seemed to work, but there's a load-order dependency
somewhere: when the system is rebooted and Apache starts, some module
that MoinMoin needs isn't running yet; restarting Apache seems to get
thing working again.)

The machine occasionally runs out of swap space and is running out of
disk space on some partitions. A (loosely) scheduled project is to 
replace the machine with a bigger x86-64 box running a more recent
OS release; that's likely to require shutting things down for a few
days while everything's migrated over.  (Maybe US Thanksgiving weekend -
which is a 4-day holiday for many people - would be a good time to do

I'm a little reluctant to tweak much of anything before then (even
something as harmless-sounding as the default MoinMoin theme).
