You may try to avoid the moiré right in the RAW conversion, try RawTherapee with
AMaZE and HPHD demosaic algorithms http://www.visualbakery.com/RawTherapee/Downloads.aspx

I just look through the channels and find a clean one, copy that channel and paste it into the moire'd ones and curve them back up to the originals density.  then color correct the color back to the original color.

Im getting a bad case of luma moire in a few files. any good way to remove this other than brushing it out line by line?

Duplicate background.
Go to channels.
Find channel with least moire.
Select all.
Copy channel contents.
Paste that over the other two channels.
Now your image is very flat and sucky looking
Go to your original background.
Pick the darkest color in the problem area for the foreground color and the brightest for the background color.
Make gradient map adjustment layer.  Clip to fixed background.
Make the blending mode color.
Do curves clipping layer to adjust brightness.
Mask as needed.

Obviously if the problem area has lots of color variation this won't work very well.  But if it's all within the same color family, it's pretty good in my non-educated opinion.
