I've played a fair bit with SnipSnap[1], and in fact have one 
running[2] on my Fedora box at home if anyone wants to play.  
Registration is open for the time being.  If anyone wants admin rights, 
I'll set you up.

Confluence[3] abso-freaking-lutely *rocks*, but costs about $4kUSD.  
Too bad TM isn't open source, 'cause they do OS licenses for free. ;-)

Confluence uses a Textile-similar markup language, and it would not be 
difficult to extend SnipSnap to use JTextile.  From what I've seen, 
instiki isn't "pure" Textile, so any kind of import will require work.
