I'm working on at least one project right now where some of my collaborators have asked for a secure wiki. A private one, where everyone has to use a password to access it.

Which is a nice thing, don't get me wrong. There is a difference between a loo on a street corner and a loo on a street corner with a curtain around it. There is also a difference between a curtained loo and a vault. Not everything needs to be in a vault, but the difference matters.
