Hmm.  Mediawiki is my favorite wiki from the user viewpoint, but
I use kwiki because I sorta understand it and the Perl it is
written in.  I would use Mediawiki instead, but I worry about
being a turning on the Apache module for PHP, a language I do
not understand and have heard scare stories about. 

Judgement question, Oh nobler and wiser heads:  is it safe to
turn on PHP and use it only for Mediawiki?  Or would I be
dabbling in the dark arts, and selling my website to Satan?

Do friends let friends drive PHP?

(not a Real Programmer (tm), though I can fake it if you hum
the first notes)
