I don't understand this, and I think my point wasn't clear enough.

In my wiki installation, I'd like to be able to have the pmwiki source 
checked out from the pmwiki repository, as well as the different recipes 
maintained from (another) repository.  In other words, my entire 
installation is under version control, albeit with different parts 
belonging to different repositories.

It's a matter of using VCS to maintain my installation, and very 
importantly, easily allow me to revert in case a mistake happens.
