I really like the suggested text.  Unfortunately, it probably would need to
be hardcoded somewhere, and placing it in mkdirp() would really extend
the length of that that function.  Part of me doesn't like adding extra
text for the PHP parser to have to deal with, especially for something
that will only be executed once (i.e., when PmWiki is first installed).

I've been thinking about making the Abort() function a bit smarter, so
that when an error occurs PmWiki loads scripts/abort.php which then
provides better diagnostics.  This would hopefully keep the running
size of PmWiki a bit smaller except/until some sort of exception occurs
that needs the increased diagnostics.
