Depends on the need. There are plenty of very capable themes that
totally transform the look and feel of WP, which is often a need for
me. Almost all of the relatively very few PmWiki themes still look
like PmWiki with some light CSS hacking. Many more graphic designers
are designing for WP. Yes, that can be done with PmWiki, but it would
be a waste of time reinventing the wheel in some cases.

It is also nice, sometimes, to have a db to access information from
when that data is being used in different ways and not just from
within the "primary" site.

PmWiki is awesome and the multi-tool analogy is fine. In the end,
there are times that the specific, full-size tool---expensive and
awkward as it might be in some situations---is preferable to the
multi-tool versions.

I'm happy both PmWiki and WordPress exist.
