Yes, the requirements you list are exactly what Pier does. Pier is MIT
licensed, so you can basically do whatever you like, read the whole
license to see the details.

> -pages consist of meta data, title, html-tagged content

- The default is a wiki syntax, but you can easily remove that and
just put plain HTML. Title and metadata are supported.

> -no more than 250 pages will be stored

- Pier can handle much more.

> -pages must be searchable (search does not need to be lightning-fast)

- There are visitors that walk over the pages.

> -pages will be organized into a hierarchical structure of categories
> and subcategories (no more than 3 levels deep).

- Nesting is possible.

> -will be hosted on a VPS, so I can install whatever is necessary.

- Free Seasidehosting will be online soon ;-)

> -traffic amounts to a few hundred page views per day.

- Seaside applications can handle much more.
