This is probably a strange request given that ikiwiki is wiki software

I'd like to convert my personal web site to ikiwiki.  I'll commit my
changes directly to a local VC repo and there will be no wiki
functionality.  As such, I don't need the majority of files from
/usr/share/ikiwiki/basewiki  As far as I can tell, I only need
style.css and local.css.

Could you move the css files to a dir called css or base and make that
the default location of underlaydir, and move the other files to an
optional basewiki plugin that would be enabled by default?  Or is
there some other way for me to exclude these files (apart from copying
the css files to a local directory and using that as my underlaydir).

By the way, even if you disagree with this request, there are some
files that should be out of basewiki, as pointed out here:

| Include shortcuts.mdwn only if you enable the shortcut plugin.
| Include favicon.ico only if you enable the favicon plugin.
| Include wikiicons/diff.png (and the wikiicons directory) only if you enable the CGI.
