John Belmonte lists a couple of points regarding the current wiki implementation (Perl + UseModWiki) powering as well as any potential replacement.

In no particular order:

* The markup and to a certain extent the interface is what really defines a wiki system
* 90% of a wiki implementation is spent on details such as database access, edit conflict resolution, page history management, security and robustness, etc * languages such as Python and PHP may be better suited for such implementations due to their extensive web and system support libraries

Now that there is a least two rather full-featured wiki implementations in Lua, namely Sputnik and Nanoki, would it be worthwhile to ponder updating the current setup in favor of a Lua implementation?
