[cgi-wiki-dev] a few initial questions

Hi all,

I've been mucking about with CGI::Wiki 0.51_01 on and off for a bit. I 
really like how you've abstracted out the important parts of building a 
wiki, but I have a few questions:

1) The 'content' schema has a field 'comment', but I couldn't find a 
place this is actually set. Is this a placeholder for future 
functionality or has it been replaced by metadata and just didn't get 
dropped from the schema?

2) I didn't find a CGI::Wiki::Store method to fetch all previous 
versions (version + modification date + comment) of an existing node. I 
coded one up myself (easy), but I just wanted to check and see if I 
missed anything.

3) Also related to versioning, has anyone developed a diff viewer for 
node content?

4) I saw mumblings from a few months back about a TWiki formatter, but 
no code. Did I miss the code or is it still floating around in 
someone's brain?
