IE 6 needs help.  Other browsers should be fine without scripting.

Yeah.  That's really my only issue.  I'm a big fan of certain key
sections always being in the same place.  For instance, the links to
different sections should always be in the same place on every page.
Left-nav menus work great for this, but they can waste a lot of
horizontal space if the page is long (leaving a big white space on one
side or the other).

Both can be skinned, but since mediawiki likes a left nav by default, it
would be nice now to have to reinvent that, and just let our global
site-specific stuff exist at the top.  Trac is almost entirely top-nav,
which makes it easy to integrate with other top-nav layouts (take a look
at the support/dev link on http://pidgin.im).
