[pmwiki-users] Change request: Page save format

Hi all,

before I write a PITS entry, I'd like to ask whether anybody is 
interested in this kind of change at all.

The use case is this:

A friend of mine has single-handedly written ~200 pages in his wiki, and 
has just today realized that he has made some systematic spelling and 
structuring errors. The easiest way would be to download the files from 
the wiki.d directory, mass edit them, and upload the results (the wiki 
would be locked against third-party contributions during that time, but 
that would be OK since there are almost no visitors yet).

Now the problem is that PmWiki puts all of the page contents into a 
single line, and while it could be infinitely worse, it's still not too 
suitable for editing with a text editor.

So my question is: is there any general interest in changing the storage 
format so that line breaks are stored as-is?
