Have you given any thought to a Wiki? I'm using TWiki and find it is an
admirable 80-90% solution. It's modular enough that it should be
possible to add a given feature that you want, and the development
momentum is sufficient that it's quite useful as is.

Hmm... TWiki doesn't have this, though the version control in it is
helpful. Superscession would be a useful feature.

This is a weakness noted here of TWiki. And for which an XWT frontent
might be quite useful.
