[pmwiki-users] $since-Parameter in PageStore

Hi there,

when I came back from my vacation this summer, a friend told me that my 
personal homepage had been messed around with. She corrected the spam on 
the main page, but there were about 40 other pages spammed as well and I 
had to restore every single one by hand (via the History of course).

Now, I thought it would be nice to be able to say: "I want to restore 
the complete homepage as it was at <timestamp>" and have PmWiki go 
through every single page and do the restore automatically.
Looking at pmwiki.php I discovered that there is a $since-Parameter in 
RetrieveAuthPage, ReadPage and the read-Method of the PageStore-class.

I thought this parameter would allow you to retrieve the content of a 
page as it was at a certain timestamp, but in my tests I couldn't verify 
this theory. So that's my question: What is the $since-Parameter good 
for? Can I use it to solve my problem?
