Our office wiki, used by the seven people on our team, runs MoinMoin
because it's a lot more lightweight than Mediawiki. I set up an
experimental MW 1.10 install and they promptly swooped on it, because
it's a fat b*gger but it's SO much easier to use ... I predict I'll be
asked to look into how to migrate the entire content.

(Moin exports to DocBook, which is XML, or nearly, so it *should* be a
Simple Matter Of XSLT ...)
