So, for example, a page's Edit and History links become self-referring
If so, I think I'd rather leave the action and include the
Bot the Light Skin and Lean Skin include the rel='nofollow'
attributes, so now there might be unintentional 'nofollow' links to
normal wiki pages -- possibly resulting in page-rank punishment. IOW
it seems to make sense to either strip unapproved actions OR use
rel='nofollow', but not do both.

Since future PmWiki versions will not be run prior to July 2005 what's
important is the fact that they're not following the links now. right?
