I'm not sure on the details, but I do know this has been a long debated and
talked about topic. To my knowledge, there is no protection, or if there
is, it's not very reliable. Don't take my word on that though, I'm not
certain on it.
What I am certain about though is that this should be high on the
development list. I think it's pretty important. I know other wiki's have
this feature, so I'm not sure why PmWiki doesn't (or does it?).
