You can easily set up MediaWiki so that anonymous users can only see
the front page and nothing else, and then control logins. Lots of
Wikimedia private wikis are set up that way (e.g.
http://internal.wikimedia.org/). Note that anyone can see what's
listed in the sidebar, even if they can't load the pages.

I know one MediaWiki that has a .htaccess that you have to get through
to even load the front page. Not sure how to hook that to their wiki
