Please provide a maintenance script / routine that deletes the consecitive identical revisions
made by "MediaWiki default".

Bug 4336: MediaWiki default should not generate revisions with identical content

In my opinion these consecitive identical revisions of the same MediaWiki messages do not
provide (new) information. Please keep the revision with the earliest timestamp and delete the
following ones unless they are not changed (by sysops or by MediaWiki default itself).

Please run the script at the WikiMedia foundations wiki's. If neccessary open a new bug with
acording product, component and dependency.

Thanks in advance!
