Thanks for the work you and others have done on this code.
Unfortunately, the one deciding factor for me between wikis is a
robust commenting scheme.  I run WackoWiki as well, and have found the
simple process of requiring authorization brings the spam problem to a
halt.  I'm not all that convinced that the current implementation of
comments/commentsmailed isn't open to a pretty vicious attack which
would simply involve repeated POST requests (easy to replicate
manually by simply reloading the comment page from the browser).
