With current moin, that is not possible.

I don't even think this is practicable. If a user saves a page and wants 
to edit it again, he could not do that. He could not even find out what 
he himself has written to you 5 minutes (or 5 days) before as he does 
not have a copy of it.

Yes, and with your idea, he could not even edit his own stuff again 
(because he saved to early or forgot something or wants to fix typos).

If you find a usable concept, tell us. :)

Similar stuff is being done for a ftp server's upload directory 
sometimes. You just can upload files there, but you can't list the 
The difference is that you have a copy of those files (and often you 
don't want to edit those uploaded files).
