Instiki has a similar feature that they call "Export".

If I remember correctly, it exports a static HTML snapshot of the wiki 
as a zipped file which can be used for "offline browsing". It is a 
feature that sounds useful - but I am not sure if it really is, since 
the zipped file(s) are no longer a wiki.
