Finally a working mediawiki sitemap

This is a follow up to Making a sitemap (opensource documentation wild goose chase).

So, thanks to the OLPC folks, we finally have a working google-compliant sitemap. 
The code below is adapted from http://wiki.laptop.org/go/SEO_for_the_OLPC_wiki/sitemapgen. 
Here are some notes about the implementation:

   1. Save the code as makesitemap.sh on the root directory (appropedia.org/)
   2. Add executing permissions to the file, by typing chmod u+x makesitemap.sh
   3. Run it from the site root by typing sh makesitemap.sh, or even better run using cron.
   4. I had to download a new version of generatesitemap.php from 
      http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:GenerateSitemap.php. 
      I was getting a Class 'MWNamespace' error.
   5. I had to get rid of the ticks on the echo lines that were present in the OLPC version. 
      They were breaking the echo.

Please feel free to ask questions. I hope that this is finally fixed right.
