Actually looking at
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ConfirmEdit#ReCaptcha it might
not be the best idea:

Unfortunately, reCAPTCHA might be a victim of its own success - as of
2011, some spammers appear to have figured out a way to bypass it,
either through character recognition or by using humans. For that
reason, it is not necessarily recommended.

Though I'm still open to other opinions.
