Does it have to be Wiki software, strictly? There are software packages
that act as a shared filestore where you upload files and all participants
can then view them by clicking on icons in a tree hierarchy. It's virtual-
ly like an Apache directory listing, only much fancier with plenty of ex-
tra options including uploads.
Hope it helps,
PS - I am familiar with a variety of Wiki packages (both as user and ad-
ministrator) and Mediawiki is probably the closest you can get to your
goal. Otherwise, consider WordPress as a a Wiki alternative where partici-
pants can all edit the pages. It's not a proper Wiki, but it's close and
it has some extra functionality.
