The whole reason I did Gardner in the first place was that SmallWiki
came with Yet Another Web Serving Framework, and my feeling is that
we've got enough of that in Squeak. So I picked the good stuff (the
parser etcetera) and forgot about the rest.

Also, SmallWiki, even though it is called 'Wiki', has higher aspirations
- AFAIK it aims more at Zope. I have installed SmallWiki last summer
under VW at Soops, and although we used it (mostly by default -
WikiWorks sucks and there's nothing else) we didn't really like this
File/Folder stuff in a Wiki. 

Gardner's UI is lacking indeed, but it comes with a nice example of how
you could customize it (www.tric.nl) :-). That was a design decision,
too - rather present no UI so people can extend it than present some
default UI you first have to take apart before adapting it to your own
