CGI::Wiki has history. Wikis just don't work unless they have 
history. For a time, one of my biggest issues with Kwiki was that it 
didn't, though they solved this issue eventually.

You're still not quite making sense, though. CGI::Wiki has page 
history, but not in a user-accessible way, because you can't do 
_anything_ to CGI::Wiki except through a specific front-end. Talk 
about openguides, or CGI::Wiki::Kwiki, or CGI::Wiki::Simple, or 
something, if you have specific questions.
