Do any of the wiki engines implement "watch" functions that would allow me to automatically receive an email notice anytime a "watched" page was modified? Also, how about notification lists - a list of users that I specify who will automatically receive a notification email anytime I edit a page.

    Well, MediaWiki can generate RSS feeds for the entire wiki and possibly also for the user's watched pages. You can use the rss2email program to send an E-mail notification based on this RSS feed.

    And naturally, if you want you can instruct rss2email to send the notification to a forward that will forward it to several addresses.
