Hey Jeff, Would you mind forwarding me a copy of your extracted data?
A long time back I extracted the same data using an instrumented copy
of the mediawiki parser, for the purpose of creating missing redirect
pages. I didn't save my work, and getting the data from you would save
me from reinventing the wheel all over again.
