As mentioned in Bug 181, it is a good idea for citations to be able to refer to
a particular version of an article. While this is already possible for all but
the latest version, the required URL is somewhat unwieldy. There is also no way
of doing this with an internal link - i.e. in discussing a page, you have to use
the [URL label] syntax, as though it was an outside page.

would be even nicer if we could refer to dates somehow, but that would require
some kind of fuzzy search to find the nearest matching revision. If bug 181 is
closed, we would be able to use this style of URL throughout for referring to a
I think there is a Feature Request matching this in Sourceforge somewhere: if I
have time, I'll copy it to here.
