Got it.  Thanks for the tip.  With this and a bit of reading Apache's
documentation, this is what I came up with:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /~torriem/
RewriteRule ^blah$ wiki/blah [NC,R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^blah/.*$ wiki/blah [NC,R=301,L]

I did two rules depending on whether someone went to just blah, blah/ or
blah/index.html (depending on bookmarks, etc).

The speed at which my pages load seems to be acceptable.  I know
.htaccess was already operating because dokuwiki uses it to turn on
clean urls.
