I'm planning to add options to ?action=diff and ?action=browse that allow
you to specify "show changes only since xxx date" (useful for resolving
conflicts in simultaneous edits) and "show the version of the page on
xxx date". Since adding the new Patch() function these are nearly trivial
and safe to implement.
I am going to change Jan's date scheme somewhat to use year-month-day
instead of the format Jan proposed--there's too much confusion between
U.S. (which normally does month-day-year) and European (day-month-year)
