I forgot to mention I used a corporate mediawiki as a backend for creating
catalyst TT pages. worked out excellent, supported 7 international (utf-8)
languages! utilized the power of categories, variables, etc to organize -
users had an easy syntax for wiki inclined or toolbar editing (wysiwyg). I
wrote a deployment tool w/ mechanize and I seem to recall mediawiki cpan
module too.

good luck!
