Create A Wiki with Four Lines of Code?

SigWik is a Wiki that only has four lines of source code. Other programming fanatics have created 12 others that are all under 50 lines of code (in languages such as Perl, Ruby, PHP, Java, and Python). Jon, who posted the above links, was inspired a bit, and created his own Wiki software. It's 58-lines, and actually readable, but still bloat-ware compared to the other stuff. If he removed all the unnecessary white-space, got rid of the XHTML output (made it straight HTML 4.0), didn't do any sort of error checking or closing of files, used some shorthand PHP, removed comments, removed the "php" from "<?php", and basically made his code totally unreadable, I think he could make it well under 50 lines and get himself listed on the above site.
