Directly, not really.  We could (should?) probably add an HTTP-Header
that identifies the software generating the page.

Indirectly you could probably figure out the pmwiki1 vs. pmwiki2 distinction by
looking at the generated HTML output.  If you see <p></p> sequences,
it's very likely to be pmwiki1; if you see <p class='vspace'></p> sequences,
it's probably pmwiki2.
