You should send a separate mail soliciting comments.. this thread has
become rather long so I suspect people don't read it.

I wonder if 'view new page draft' could be confusing (difficult to
interpret properly). Here's a slightly long suggestion but hopefully
easier to understand for someone new to this:
? create new page
¿ view draft of new page
! view original page
¡ view draft of existing page
> So an inverted symbol always refers to a draft action.
Um... shouldn't ¡ be mapped to 'view draft of existing page' then?
I think that's how you've implemented it, so I assume it's merely a typo
Anyway, it's time for user feedback. Btw, I hope the spanish don't mind us
using their symbols in this way -- I have no idea what they really mean.

Ok, that looks better -- still feels kind of weird with '! draft -'

It's probably better to wait for opinions from other users on what seems
intutive to them, than for us to fix problems that maybe doesn't exist.

No, I don't think so.

Maybe we should simply ask Patrick to incorporate a hook object into the
standard pmwiki, so that plugins can make things happen after other stuff
has been configured. I'll send a separate e-mail to Patrick about this.
