My $0.02:

At work, about a year and a half ago (wow, that was a while back), we 
killed faqomatic with prejudice, and replaced it with MediaWiki.  I 
wrote a bunch of scripts to convert several hundred entries, and do 
automatic redirects of the old faqomatic URLs.

It was so long ago that I don't remember all that we hated about 
faqomatic, but I do know that once everyone got used to formatting 
things the wiki way, everyone liked the wiki a lot more.
