I've modified their config slightly because I ran into a few issues, but
I can't recall exactly what they were. This has worked pretty well for
me -- anonymous users get data served from cache, logged-in users get
images cached but page content is not.

I really only use my wiki once a year, but it gets heavy usage (few
hundred people making edits for 3 days straight) and has had good hit
rates and no complaints.
