It might be possible to return the history of the feed, but it's
actually a much different animal than a list of pages, if only because
it requires returning and processing a different data structure.
So, it's a possible option at some point, but I'm not anywhere close
to being able to implement it. Plus I'd need to see how much demand
there is for it (PmWikiPhilosophy #3), so perhaps we should just put
this in PITS for the time being.
