  Note also the minor glitch that deleted page float to the
top since the time is taken from the individual pages (which
no longer exist), and not from the RecentChanges listing.

  It would be nice to have the default for the pagelist
trail= option to not order the pages at all.  This would
allow the original trail order to be used.  I had to
override the order with -time or else it will order things
alphabetically.  If not the default, an oder=none option
would be good in this case.
