You're right, it requires a lot of efforts to have a secure installation.

For the last two points Wooki's approach is to provided easy writing but
also 'clean' writing for import/export purpose. This is why we have chosen
wymeditor as document editor. Also, we have in mind to provide a REST API to
interoperate with other systems (at least get and put)

BTW my experience of wiki is that when the documentation becomes large, it's
hard to find valuable information and there is a lack of interaction with
readers. IMHO The tool that will be chosen for Tapestry documentation must
have a powerful search engine, a clear and easy way to access and navigate
through the documentation + social features in which i really believe to
make the documentation 'alive'
