Whether moin is cpu intensive or not depends on what you do.

If you run a small wiki with not many page and not many visitors, your 
cpu will be rather bored.

If a some dozen of googlebots (or other bots) raid your wiki or some 
genius of a user thinks he must mirror the wiki with the usual 
inappropriate tools, your CPU can be at a quite high load.

Same for some extensions. I tried that "dot" graph stuff and some of it 
eats memory chips. The gdchart graphics stuff can also make some load, 
when abused.

CGI is the slowest way to run moin, but can be appropriate for small sites.

Everything else is faster, because moin code is persistently in memory.
