Good point! Should it be possible to do this automatic and display e.g. a
list of "affected" pages in a wiki page. I already imaging a format with
three links for each: Old version new version and diff. I figure we then
need something like a wikilib.old to hold the wikilib.d pages of the former
version. can't be to hard to put this in my bash upgrade script :-) This
would make it a lot easier to maintain upgrades for people like me how
fiddle with the standard wikilib.d pages :-)
