Wiki with flat file backend …

So I wanted to set up another wiki. My first idea was Mediawiki, as apparently everyone seems to use it. However, as I know I will move most services to a new server I did not want to have to go through the hassle of moving the data in a database. I remembered some of the early wiki engines used a flat file backend. Some of them are still alive today and I would like to point out pmwiki.org. Not only do they use a flat file backend and about 200 plugins, but they also want to be easyly updatable. Quite nice if you ask me. The default installation comes with rss support (although it lack a clickable link – adding a ‘&action=rss’ to the url does the trick) and a clean theme.
Should you need to decide on a wiki take this evaluation into account …
