Actually, I don't have any intent of creating ?action=publish in
the core, so we're likely pretty safe. This is also a case where
"?action=publish" in WikiCalendar _far_ predates anything I ever
did with publishing -- I believe it was first created in 2003
(and perhaps even 2002).

Yes, a very good idea.

Also, a good idea, however, I'm not sure that recipe actions belong in
PmWiki.AvailableActions. I think I'd rather have a
Cookbook.AvailableActions for that (and it could go ahead and
list the core actions as well).
