Wikis in general don't pose any problems. Depending on implementation
there may be a slight increase in cpu cycles consumed. Instiki, the
wiki implementation I'm using, only has one dependency: ruby. It runs
on its own port and can run as any user at all, so security should be
a minor issue. I'm not sure whether it will run as a module or CGI
under apache but I can imagine some might prefer that.

Like has been discussed elsewhere, you would want to have static
mirrors everywhere but the master location where all the edits happen.
So finding one person willing to install ruby and allow instiki to run
is the only requirement.

De gustibus non disputandum est.
