The problem I saw (and because of this I removed the list) are the 
missing diffs (or the bad usability with it) after further additions to 
the page are made. Imagine in a half year you want to update the page in 
the CVS, in the meantime there were 10 changes in the wiki page, maybe 
someone reordered all the things! You can start from scratch then or try 
to reproduce all the changes for the CVS version - and this from version 
n to v. n+1, from v. n+1 to v. n+2 and so on. After the removal of the 
list I think we have a cleaner approach.
