I did a little research and converted my home server to run MoinMoin
using fastCGI. I haven't done any rigorous testing, but the wiki is
noticably faster. Page loads are instant rather than taking a couple
seconds. It also uses less CPU. Using CGI, heavy use would peg the
processor, but now it only hits about 10% doing the same tasks.

The reconfiguration only took me 10 minutes including reading the
docs. The instructions are on the page 'HelpOnInstalling/FastCgi' on
the wiki if you want to give it a try.

Basically you :
  install libapache2-mod-fastcgi with aptitude
  replace the moin.cgi script with moin.fcg
  edit apache config
  restart apache

I'd be glad to give more input if needed. The other option is using
mod_python but per the docs it substantially increases apache memory
