Hey, any reason will do. You proposed, you installed, so you get to 
choose. Technology discussions are boring :)

The 'lucky thing' with the Cocoon Wiki was Leigh Dodds jumping in and 
adding heaps of high quality content he already created in his private 
Wiki only _minutes_ after me setting up the JSPWiki instance. I'm pretty 
lucky actually that JSPWiki can take the load, since I didn't thoroughly 
tested it before choosing it :)

<blush/> cocoondev.org, i.e. all of http://cocoondev.org/sites.html is 
running on an single CPU Intel P4 2GHz, 1 Gig RAM, 80Gig HD, which is 
_much_ lower-grade than nagoya IIUC.

Totally agree. For the specific context where the Cocoon Wiki lives in, 
I can only say it hasn't let me down so far - which doesn't guarantee 
anything w.r.t. scalability however.

The good thing about all this, is that I went to the Apache Wiki little 
time after it was installed, and saw somebody already had been kind 
enough to reference the 'real' _Cocoon_ Wiki at
