    MoinMoin - Action Implementation

    Actions are triggered by the user clicking on special links on the page
    (e.g. the "edit" link). The name of the action is passed in the "action"
    CGI parameter.

    The sub-package "MoinMoin.action" contains external actions, you can
    place your own extensions there (similar to extension macros). User
    actions that start with a capital letter will be displayed in a list
    at the bottom of each page.

    User actions starting with a lowercase letter can be used to work
    together with a user macro; those actions a likely to work only if
    invoked BY that macro, and are thus hidden from the user interface.

    Additionally to the usual stuff, we provide an ActionBase class here with
    some of the usual base functionality for an action, like checking
    actions_excluded, making and checking tickets, rendering some form,
    displaying errors and doing stuff after an action.
