The urlapprove.php script in PmWiki 2 is designed to allow moderation
of external links, which is where most of the spam seems to come from.
It's not hard to implement a mass rollback option, although it may
end up acting like a sledgehammer solution (i.e., it may undo more
changes than intended). But a mass rollback feature can be added to
PITS and eventually it'd be turned into a cookbook item.
