I've actually implemented a WikiWikiClone in ASP+VBScript without much
trouble (it's fairly weak right now, - no version history, limited
formatting support, etc. -  but I plan on improving it, mostly by
porting VBScript code to Python).

It's in French, and the source code is not public, but I could release
the sources if someone was brave enough to look at it (it's hideous,
you've been warned, but it has been working fairly well for six
months). Anyway, making a WikiClone in VBScript was more a challenge
than a real assignement.
