I think trac wiki format is similar to mediawiki, but there are

The code is based in observation, I didn't try to read the full
specification of trac. If you have a parser, the whole approach is
doomed. I don't know if it's a good idea to add this code to the tree.

You're right, a double "_"  is better. For mediawiki, it would be
important to take care of "mediawiki categories" too. Trac has a plugin
implemeting "tags", but it's not a standard plugin.

In a few months I'll have time to read and think about zim. I'm looking
forward to reading the python port.
