Maybe let him install moin once into system locations. He also could 
configure Apache so that you can use ~/public_html/ directory in your 
home directory. You also need your own cgi-bin directory and the CGI 
should be run under your own user id. So anyone can setup his own wiki. 
This is also described in the moin install docs.

If you aren't in a hurry (or he is willing to upgrade often :), you 
could also use moin 1.3 which will have better multiple config support, 
but is currently still in beta.

If you (he) rather want to stay on the stable path: 1.2.4 will be 
released RSN.

mod_python is faster, but not easier than using CGI.
