Yes, I agree that wikis do need some kind of moderation. One approach
could be an accompanying e-mail list that provides some oversight, so
for example, all contributors know when someone has taken on editing or
"refactoring" a particular page or topic area. I believe WikiPedia works
like this.

In discussion about the Linux in Education Book, Dennis Daniels pointed
out Tiki - http://alt.thetinfoilhat.com/tiki-index.php  

Tiki has lots of nice features, but I especially like the wiki page
layout which has a separate area for comments.
