I don't want clicking the link to automatically cause the page to 
revert to the previous version, because then webcrawlers and robots
traversing a PmWiki site will activate the "Restore" links and all
sorts of chaos would ensue.  :-)  Thus there needs to be an edit step
(or some other form-based submission) prior to the restore actually

Rather than "Restore", how about having the link say something like
"Edit this version"?  But even that phrasing is a bit misleading, 
since by editing that version you'd also be replacing the current page...

Thanks to everyone for commenting on this--I'm pretty convinced the
links need to go between revisions and I'm still dithering on the exact
wording that should be used.
