It would be misleading only for visitors who have the old version
in their Firefox cache.

What version of Firefox? Some older versions of Firefox had real
problems with the Expires: header (which Apache sometimes uses as a
form of cache control in browsers).
At any rate, because pmwiki.org uses direct downloads, any caching
issues would be between Firefox and pmwiki.org's Apache installation
(which is by-and-large set to the default settings from my hosting
provider). I can look into it a bit more if it's a big issue, but
holding down the shift key when hitting "Reload current page" ought
to get the most recent version of the file.
