[pmwiki-users] notice of current edit

Prior to opening PITS/Cookbook entries, and after searching the site and
the email archive with no success, here's a question:
Has anyone suggested before that when opening for edit a page that's
currently being edited by someone else, a notice come up saying
* "this page is being edited since (timestamp)"...
* admin-selectable, for sites who want it: ..." by (authorname)"
Subsequent edits would not change the original timestamp, which would get
cleared only on that author saving the page, or by a new edit after a
configurable interval (fixed or variable with the size of the content)
That way, well-behaved netizens would leave alone pages which are being
edited, thus avoiding the unpleasant business of having to waddle through
