There was a Wiki called Subwiki for a while that did this. (I think the
code might be dead now.) My company (CollabNet) had written an interface
atop Subversion for storing Wiki-like browser-edited page layout stuff (not
open source). Google Code's Wiki seems to store its page data in
Subversion. (Hrm... I'm detecting a pattern here... )
