Possible overkill, if one of the lesser wikis would
meet your needs.

The git wiki is on MoinMoin: http://git.or.cz/gitwiki
And that one requires no RDBMS, which is one fewer
thing to administer.  MoinMoin does have attachments
and ACLs.  I'm thinking about using MoinMoin for a
project unless someone really sells me on MediaWiki
or one of the others.
