Yes, I use PmWiki myself and think it's great. However, custom markup
rules would work only as a partial solution here, since PmWiki stores
pages (with all diffs) in its own peculiar flat file format that can't
really be edited directly. (Take a look at the files in your wiki.d

I suppose one could create org markup rules for Pmwiki and then edit the
pages in org-mode via w3m. There is also a defunct pmwiki-mode for emacs
that pulls PmWiki pages off a website for editing.

For org-mode/wiki integration, oddmuse might be a good choice, since its
stores each pages as a very simple plain text file. In fact, a quick
google search revealed some efforts to create org-mode markup for
oddmuse a year ago.

I'll have to investigate further.
