I have security tested this wiki and its been running in multiple 
installations on my server.  Besides this, it isn't any more dangerous 
or priviledged than bugzilla. (and less so probably because bugzilla is 
names such not because of its function but because it is a giant bug 
with bug reporting features)...

I do not know.  http://nagoya.apache.org/wiki/apachewiki.cgi?ApacheWiki 
lists everything I know.  However there is this:
$UseEmailNotify = 0;       # 1 = allow email notification,     0 = don't
$NotifyDefault  = 0;       # Default for email notify checkbox on Edit page.
$EmailFrom      = "Wiki";  # Text for "From: " field of email notes.
                           # (But Reply-to; is set to same as To: anyway.)
$SendMail       = "/usr/sbin/sendmail"; # Full path to sendmail executable
configuration information in "config".  If you wish to research it and 
supply a patch please look here: 
http://nagoya.apache.org/wiki/apachewiki.cgi?ApacheWiki and follow the
