This module is a collection of functions to assist in extracting information
from full Wikipedia pages.
 
It is not intended to be a full parser, or anything like that, merely a simple
system for grabbing a few relevant details.  These functions are not intended 
to be called directly from templates, but rather these functions would be 
included and referenced in other Lua modules that examine page text.
