The criterion shouldn't be language, but rather what features it offers. 
I'm not thrilled with the TextCha option in MoinMoin, but I'm hesitant to
rip out one wiki for another for just one feature.

Now that I've had to actually wrangle MoinMoin a bit, it's not too bad. 
At least, not bad enough that I think we have to dump it ASAP.

I was only seeing 1-2 spams per day, which I was fixing as soon as I saw
them, so I'm not that worried about this right now.  I think this
discussion just happened because there are more people looking at the wiki
now (yay!) and it hapened to be a page people saw.

Anyway: what features do we need to shop for?
- Easier user management: MoinMoin makes you switch to a user ID to
disable it, which is a pain for the multiple users that build up from
- Easier theme management: I'd like to have the wiki better integrated
visually into the dragonflybsd.org site, and no looking so 'wiki-ish'. 
I've seen a number of Trac installs that are well-integrated that way.
- Portable: there should be a conversion method from MoinMoin to any new
target we select.

I've probably managed to kill the idea with verbiage at this point.
