Since we now have the Version headers in each of the cookbook pages,
it ought to be possible for us to set up something using that.
See, for example, http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/RecipeVersions .

We can set up a recipe and protocol to help site administrators manage
recipes.  First, recipe authors can add a line like the following into

    $Recipe["CookbookPageName"]["version"] = "2006-03-12";

For example, the RandomQuote recipe would have in it:

    $Recipe["RandomQuote"]["version"] = "2006-03-06";

Then, we can come up with a recipe that allows a site administrator
to compare the $Recipe values against the ones reported on pmwiki.org,
and report any differences.
