I was thinking that, then I saw how wikis were actually being used.
MediaWiki is a lardarse - power of a tank and durability of a tank,
with handling of a tank and mileage of a tank - with silly
requirements compared to e.g. my home work intranet wiki, which has
ten users and is MoinMoin because that uses flat files rather than
MySQL. I wouldn't object to MediaWiki, but I can see a lot to say for
the viewpoint that it would be overkill.
