Well, oddly, I don't have much of a dissenting opinion.

I personally don't use the OO MW much, but have been using the cwiki a lot.
I find it less quirky than MW to tell you the truth.

I would be much much better to only maintain ONE wiki though regardless of
what it is.

Mostly I use the "Project Planning" area.

So,

+1 on only one wiki, and given the scope of MW over cwiki, I'm happy to go
with MW providing the existing info -- marketing, planning, etc.
