webserverless Python Wiki Engines: do they exists?

Hi all,

I've just a few hours looking via google, http://c2.com/cgi/wiki, and 
the python.org wiki, but haven't had luck, so it's time to ask:

I'm looking for a stand alone Python wiki engine that does not require a 
web server such as Apache or MS IIS. I have found such beasts in other 
languages (e.g. <http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?EddiesWiki> in C++, and a couple 
in Ruby), but none written in Python. A pointer to any that I've missed 
would be most appreciated.

To give some idea of my requirements: Python is the only programming 
language that I know anything to speak of, and my skills are modest. 
(Python is a thesis procrastination projec and I've done no web 
programming to date.) I have an itch in the PIM domain, and I am wanting 
to find a project as a basis to build upon that is 1) appropriate in 
scope/complexity for a relative newcomer and 2) would enable me to have 
a personal wiki (not exposed to the web). I am running WindowsMe, and 
Python 2.3.4. I don't mind if I have to get some extra packages, but I 
definitely don't want to have to come to terms with something like Zope. 
(One day, perhaps, but not too soon.)

If there were one that used ReStructuredText for markup, that would be 
great. But at this point, I think I'd be better off not restricting the 
pool :-)

Thanks for any pointers. Best,

Brian vdB
