What's a REST interface? There's several ways to get the MediaWiki
markup of a specific page:
* Go to the edit page; it contains the latest version of the markup
* Go to [[Special:Export]], where you can get either the current
version or all versions of a number of pages, in XML
* At http://download.wikimedia.org/backup-index.html are the complete
database dumps of the various wikis; the content of the page is in one
of the tables
