[MediaWiki-l] Custom JavaScript

OK, Ive spent the better part of two hours trying to figure out mediawiki
JavaScript. In the last two hours all I have accomplished is giving myself
a headache.

My goal is a basic JavaScript tool for moving pages. On a private wiki I
run it is often needed to archive material that is no longer needed, We
dont like to delete because often this material is still useful. Instead we
move it to a custom namespace.

What I am trying to do in JavaScript and failing spectacularly at is a tool
that will take Title, and move it to Archive:Title without a redirect with
a single click.

Yes I know it sounds simple but Im having a devil of a time figuring out
how to use the mediawiki js api

Any help would be welcome
