What does "edit through the web" mean? Like a wiki page?

Moin offers this.

Moin does not do FTP. And it would not work with revisioning.

Not sure why you need FTP when you can have HTTP.

There is raw action to get the wiki page content, there is action Load 
to load a page from a file and action Save to save a page into a file.

Moin has a builtin parser for reST (#format rst).

You can use wiki xmlrpc. There are some samples in 
MoinMoin/script/xmlrpc and .../old/xmlrpc.
