Is this the pattern for all the pages in your wiki? If not, things will
get a bit complicated.

This can be difficult to do with just HTTP rewriting, I think. Although
it is a pretty flexible system, I don't know that it can handle this.

At first blush, I'd suggest a wrapper program, such index.php, to take
the pathinfo and reconstruct the proper path to pmwiki, and then handing
it off with a redirect to pmwiki.php.

This should be able to handle anything external. But how you will get
pmwiki to rewrite internal links as you wish is beyond me.

I have to ask, what are your reasons for doing this?
