Yes, and I've already fixed a lot of these.

Well, that's easy; just increase the level of all the others by adding
an extra = in front of all of them.

Actually if you put all the other sections down by one the TOC will show
a tree that says:

- Eggs tutorial
  - Introduction
  - ...

I don't really understand what you want; even if we changed svnwiki-sxml
to allow "=" to mean "h1" (or "==" to mean h1, "===" to mean h2 etc),
it's still up to the users of the wiki to add a title heading to their
pages.  This doesn't happen now, so I don't see why people will do this
after this rather trivial change of raising all the levels by 1.
