WikiProxy is great, Daniel! Thanks for making such a robust interface  
for accessing text :-)

I have one question: is it possible to access the data WikiProxy  
holds without using HTTP? (For example, using PHP's CLI SAPI or  
direct inclusion of the WikiProxy library). You mention that you're  
concerned about PHP startup times, and I guess the latter method  
would alleviate that to some extent.
