Thanks. I'm trying to get it to work.
Having problems with apache and/or iptables...

The goal of my patch was
(a) to remain minimal
(b) to easily allow for customizability toward several different cliki
 installations, each of which would only have to redefine variables,
 not functions.

I am quite OK with magic variables; I just prefer them
to have an obviously magic name, as in %out% or something like that.
Or maybe just use a special variable.

Yes, and my patched version supports that, too,
if only for backward compatibility.
But I don't like to insert functions in what works otherwise
quite fine as data, so I don't use this feature right now.

Yup. Maybe it should take an optional argument that determines
the answer to give should the page not exist, as in
nil => nil, t => (get-universal-date), foo => foo

Also when I redefine something in the cliki software.
Maybe have a "all pages are more recent than this date" variable,
initialized to the date of some magic file at startup? Hum.

Thanks once again for CLiki.
