[wp-hackers] Revision Control in Post?

I am just wrapping up a plugin that works with modern versions of  
WordPress. It's based on an old Blicki (Blog + Wiki) plugin originally  
developed from the guys at Automattic. There was also a plugin called  
WP-Verioning (http://watershedstudio.com/portfolio/software/wp_versioning.html 
). Again this was a very old plugin that appear to no longer bee  

I've tested it with version 2.3.1 forward (have not tested under 2.5).  
Unlike the Blicki and WP-Verioning plugins that created separate DB  
tables to store the information I'm using the wp_posts table and  
keeping the versioned item as a special post_type. It appears to be  
very stable. The Versioned items appear on the post/page editor  
screens. Each revision has a link to view (similar to Preview) the  
revision in the theme. Also there is a link for each revision to load  
that previous version into the editor. From here is can be saved and a  
new Revision is created.

If you would like try the plugin I'll be glad to send it to you. I had  
a few more 'features' I'm wanting to add this weekend before posting  
it officially to the repositoory.
