I would say the UseModWiki seems to be quite sufficient. One feature I really like
about the AtisWiki we use here at work is the ability to force a link by surrounding
it with underscores, i.e. _lexical_cast_. So I don't have to use LexicalCast. Is
there some other syntax that one could use?

Other than this the BoostWiki looks great. I like the user preferences.
