Searching perhaps... but linking no.  You can interwiki to anything.

UseModWiki is not very friendly or easy to look at.  MoinMoin is much 
better for producing readable wiki pages IMO.  Codehaus already had it 
setup so I just started using it.  If someone at Apache wants to set it 
up that would be fine... but I am starting to get the impression that 
things do not change very quickly so it is easier to use Codehaus for 
now.  If MoinMoin gets setup on an Apache machine somewhere it should 
be trivial to move the wiki data.

I guess I am also a little weary about maintenance and additions to 
make the wiki more functional.  Right now I have more or less direct 
control over the wiki, so am free to add java syntax highlighters, 
translators or whatever.

But as always just my opinion ;-)
