The export and versioning add-ons from Scroll make Confluence far more
suitable for documentation than any other wiki I've found, and I think
I've looked at all of the ones that are remotely plausible.

Confluence's biggest weakness is that it's too hard to get existing
content in. It has a Word import but some serious bugs that require a
lot of cleanup.

If MadCap integrated Flare with Confluence, now that could be a killer app.
