I don't really knot MoinMoin either. I would however assume that it's save
to remove all files with ``MoinEditorBackup`` in their names, which are
older than, asy, a day. How many would those be? If it's a significant
amount, you should consider deleting those directories (maybe after adding
them to a TAR backup).

Cheers, A.
