Well I can probably fix that if you want.  I have no need to delete in my
case, and I can see a valid desire to do it both ways:  deleting lines 
individually or all together since it was one submission.  Not having a need 
for the delete myself in this case, I think it might be hard to predict 
the "correct" behavior, maybe both should be possible.  I will look into it 
more. Feel free to hold off on incorporating the multi insertion changes 
until a better delete solution is proposed/achieved.

Ah yes, I meant to sort those out too and forgot.

Well, your recipe is a little harder than some, but what I try to do is simply 
setup a test wiki with various pages that are supposed to what I expect.

Hmm, I disagree, I think that as lons as things are properly threaded people 
will appreciate it.  Others are interested in your recipe and some of the 
technical details too.  Since the list is overloaded as you say, people 
should be used to reading only the threads that interest them.  Only poor 
Patrick seems to read them all! :)
