MediaWiki, and Wikis in general, have a spate of problems that make them 
not terribly useful for document management.

I've gotten some experience with a few actual document management 
systems since the last time this came up. That's document management, 
not content management.

The first is called DocDB. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. It's awful, 
but the scientific community loves it so that's what I'm running.

I looked at a few others and my top choice is LetoDMS. It's easy to 
install (aptitude install letodms), simple to configure, is agnostic to 
file types, does versioning, doesn't use any unique or custom markup.
