While I agree that MoinMoin is easy to setup and admin, my only issue
with MoinMoin is that upgrading versions usually requires running a
bunch of upgrade scripts.  My memories of the upgrade from 1.0 to
1.3.5 are not too pleasant.  That said, the upgrade scripts did work
and overall it has worked well for the mayavi wiki.  All of the wiki
data is spread over several files and this is sometimes a little
disconcerting from the admin/backup perspective.

Yes, inlined images are definitely doable with trac.  See here:
