I think you're it (or will be). The other PmWiki sites that I know of
all have less than 500 pages with the exception of
http://www.sci.tamucc.edu/wiki which has about 1200 pages.

I believe the search algorithm is very brute force and linear in the
number of pages.  But with Moore's Law working in your favor that may
be good enough.  :-)
