I'm not sure if it could do that, but it probably could with some
tweaking. PmWiki now has drafts built-in, e.g. Group.Page-Draft, and
it doesn't take much pagelist and php-fu to keep them out of listings,
so I hadn't thought of that use.
I have a wikifarm with half a dozen fields and 2 different shared
pagestores. What I want the shared page feature for is to save me the
tedious FTP copy-to-desktop delete-original-file
upload-file-to-appropriate-shared-pagestore dance. I realize this
chore will be simpler through the shell. Now, I just got a shell
account the other day, but plenty of other people on shared hosting
don't have, and will never be *allowed* to have shell accounts.
In a few weeks, once I have a paycheck from my new dayjob in my hot
little hands, I can even afford to make a donation to fund development
of features I want. Some of that would *definitely* be earmarked for

If the page properties were in wikiform markup, a few conditionals
takes care of that.
