OK, I've done a bit more, based on your idea.

You can now have pre_retrieve and pre_write plugins. These are passed 
their parameters by reference (the other plugins get it by value), so you 
can tweak stuff before it gets into the normal retrieve/write code.

There's no way yet for plugins to deny a read/write. Anyone got any 
thoughts on how this should be done, on both the plugin side (indicating 
a deny) and the Store side (what to return if a deny happens)?

Dom - while I think, are you going to set up the Trac for cgi-wiki on 
urchin, or shall I sling it on a Torchbox server?

Now, what's next on the cgi-wiki todo.... :)
