I reviewed it and I will add a hook to allow loading of draft.php for 
actions other than 'edit', see:


You can get the pre-release at pmwiki.org/Subversion (svn or zip; only 
draft.php changed) then in your template, use something like this:

(:input submit post Save:)
(:if auth admin:)
(:input submit postdraft "Save draft":)
(:input hidden postdraft 1:)

This way, regular editors pressing "Save" will save to the draft page, 
and administrators will save to the real page; admins will see an 
additional "Save draft" button if they want to re-save the draft page.
