Yes - and that's even more important.

I once accidentally overwrote a recipe with a buggy version, and had the 
old version neither locally nor could I retrieve it from PmWiki. It took 
me a bit until I had cleaned that mess up.

No ;-)

Actually, I think simple versioning in the uploads/ directory would be 
just fine. I.e. no branching, no merging, just a way to compare and 
retrieve previous versions. (Branches and merges are just too powerful 
and complex for mini-projects like PmWiki recipes.)
