TWiki is even easier to set up - MediaWiki requires a database behind 
it, and lots of glue.

TWiki uses files on the file system (this is the kind of thing RieserFS 
is for, right? Database/Filesystem convergence)

While there was a big hoopla about a security hole a little while ago 
(a big security hole, where the lazy programmer did the usual /^(.*)$/ 
trick to get around Taint checking), that's been solved. Can anyone 
tell me whether MediaWiki has undergone as much scrutiny as TWiki has?

TWiki is simple to set up and use - it's practially a case of install 
the package and go. You don't have to worry about a change in the MySQL 
package disabling your Wiki.
