[Moin-user] feature request open wiki in controlled world

Everyone here knows the benefits of wiki. When a "trust but
verify" approach is applied, the return from allowing open edits
far outweighs the risk of mis-information.

But what about in a controlled orginization? Where there is desire
to use a wiki but policy or procedures prevent it.

Perhaps a simple module can go a long way to address the
situation.  The hypothetical module gives users the option to
view the revisions last edited by AuthorizedGroup or the "wild
revision" (edits by users not in that group). Pages would default
to the authorized revision if that is newer than the wild type but
there would be an indication on the authorized page if a newer
wild revision where available.

The biggest problem I see with this is broken links or inappropriate
references due to mis-qualified page links. But the more I imagine
the implementation the less I think this would be an actual problem?

Thoughts? Would this be easy or difficult to implement?  I'm happy
to post this in the wiki feature request, if people think it's a
worthwhile feature.
