Hi Christopher,

What I have in mind:
1) Loop through all the pages (per group),
2) Extract all author + csum + ctime (+ host) information per page,
3) Sort all entries by time to reconstruct the timeline.
   (Not sure, but sorting entries in RAM could be problematic for large
wiki. Dunno, if PHP cares.)
4) Write to *RecentChanges files.

Is there any such recipe?
