Sure.  I didn't put enough time into it to get a perfect automated
translation. Part of the problem here is that pandoc's internal model of
tables contains neither colspans nor rowspans, nor borders, so lots of
information gets lost in translation in a table-heavy page like this.

The script could be improved to pass through some tables as raw
HTML.  And we might have better results doing it again with pandoc's
mediawiki reader (though we'd no doubt also find bugs in the reader
that could be fixed).
