Since it appears to be a fairly strongly copyleft project, I
assume you have published its SQL data model?
The table setup statements are in "wikipedia.sql" in the source tree;
nothing's really documented as such, but it's mostly pretty

* The cur_id, old_id, cur_old_version, and old_old_version fields are
used to put together linked lists of version histories.
A dump of the database (80 megs compressed) is available at:
