This is in fact what the AutoRestore script does, except the default
page is drawn from wikirev.d/ instead of wikilib.d/. (I'm opting to
leave wikilib.d/ for distributed files and scripts, although admins
can certainly do other things with it.)
Neil's post is wanting to restore the contents of the page but
preserve the page's history (presumably including the history that
the page contents were restored).
