Sounds good. Overall I was thinking along the same lines as Steven. I'm not
sure whether the preview content should only be accessible using a special
URL (e.g. action=editpreview) or if it should be accessible from the UI,
since PmWiki could automatically alert the user to the fact that a
previously auto-saved page exists if they try to edit a page and the date of
the preview autosave is more recent than that of the actual last edit.
At least speaking for myself, multiple people creating stored previews are
not a concern. Until page locking is implemented, the issues involved don't
seem to be any different than those regarding actual page edits.
