I was just looking back over this, and it's not quite what I was asking for. We added the ability to return the revID of a page, but we're not able to specify an old TO parse. For example, the current revID of [[w:Test]] is 204141151. If I wanted to parse the original version of the page (id: 11659), there is no way to do so. I guess I'm saying being able to specify a revID /instead/ of a page title, so we can allow parsing of old versions.

OK, will do this.
