Not that I have any emotional attachment to MoinMoin, which the hawiki
is based on, but...

MoinMoin supports arbitrarily named links, like so: ["anything goes"].
If you set the appropriate check mark in your user preferences,
RunTogetherWords are displayed as Seperate Word for you.  Seperation of
article and discussion is a cultural, not a technical problem.

MoinMoin supports arbitrary attachments.  Just put a link named
attachment:filename into the page, then follow the new link to upload
the attachment.  If it is an image, it will even be displayed inline.
However, this feature is currently disabled.  (Why?)

What HaWiki needs is not yet another wiki engine (unless one were
written in Haskell, of course :)), but better indices.  There are too
few ways to get around (I'm always using the search features, but those
should be the last resort, not the first option) and too many orphaned
