I prefer this method. Maybe apply it to entire groups as well as 
individual pages.

The search page could include an option to "include archived / obsolete 


1. I've got a slew of pmwiki.org pages bookmarked, and it's on my todo 
list to go through and see if the nifty feature will be useful. If I get 
"page does not exist", it'll be frustrating.

2. Scrolling past the Version One group every time I search for 
something takes time. (For that matter, scrolling past the Profiles. Any 
chance of putting Documentation and Cookbook groups first?)

3. People using older versions will want to find the documentation. E.g. 
MailPosts vs Notify.

4. As stated by someone else, pages that refer to the old one. Not a 
problem IF everyone knows about and uses the feature I read about 
somewhere that shows all pages that link to the current page. (Be a pain 
to do it for more than a few pages at a time, though.)
