[pmwiki-users] annoying behavior of AllRecentChanges

Maybe it's just me, but I find the way that AllRecentChanges combines 
multiple edits to a page into a single line really annoying. It ends 
up looking like only one person has worked on the page when, 
in  fact, there may have been dozens.

I guess the "recent" part of the name might be a clue, but  recent 
suggests a period of time (within the last day or whatever) rather 
than the absolutely last edit per page.

What I really want is a change journal, and that may be easy (for 
someone who knows PHP) to do. The behavior I would like to see is:
1) log all edits
2) combine successive edits of the same page by one author into a single record

and if possible:

3) if two successive edits of the same page by one author are more 
than a day apart, do not combine them

Is there a cookbook entry for this that I have missed?
