If you are logged in, you can click on the info icon and just revert the 
page to an older version with a single click in revision history.
That's less work than the guy has writing the stuff in...

If there are other logged in users in your wiki, they can do some of the 
reverts, too.

In the CVS version is a working ACL implementation. Read about it in the 
MoinMoin wiki on page AccessControlList.

Be aware that ACLs are not wiki way at all, so use them rarely.
