[sf-perl] Kwiki anyone?

At the other end of things, if all you're looking for is a simple  
wiki structure, I can recommend TinyWiki.

The developer is extremely responsive to bugs, but since there's only  
100 lines of code (or so), there isn't much to be buggy. :-) The code  
is dense, but since it's so short you can understand it completely in  
a few hours.

Granted -- it doesn't do email or RSS or come with themes or hundreds  
of templates -- but it does let you use any (X)HTML you like.

Personally, I've also had good luck with UseModWiki. It comes with  
several templates, seems to still have support from the community,  
and lets you use CSS for all the fancy formatting you want.

(Adding patches is a bit of a hassle, though.)
