When I first looked at wikis I was concerned with access control, and Twiki 
looked good, but right after I loaded a copy to play with, they had their 
first big security scare and a lot of sites got hacked.

Now I've got a little MediaWiki experience with public sites and I need to 
investigate whether/how it can be set up to provide limited access to only 
those inside the company (but possibly from their home office, without 
requiring a VPN).
