Well, the way you get a TestDayPage instance relies on the naming
and the way mwclient/wikitcms work, that's kinda...a two-way thing. If
you want to "find" a test day page directly you tell it the date and
the subject and that lets it construct the correct name. Going the
other way, if you feed it a test day page URL / name, it figures out
that it's a test day page and gives you the correct class in much the
same way:
so...yeah, it's sorta baked in there. I *can* change it all up, it's Or whoever wants the page names to be different can do it.

Yes, I get the motivation, I just wanted to point out that it's a
disruptive change and we would want to handle this.
