Many docs will be applicable to both versions.  Many will apply to only
one version.  Is anything beyond a page naming convention required to
distinguish the two?

Underlying what? :)  Back in my day, ice-creams were 5c each, school was
a 10 mile walk through blizzards, and filesystems were good enough for

But yes, that is a good point.  Being able to roll back files is probably
essential for serious doc use.  We could simply set up a logrotate script
on the server to back up each day's content.

Also, JSPWiki's "Wiki.jsp?page=<blah>" URI space is horribly non-portable
and un-cool[1], but that can be fixed in 5 minutes with
request.getPathInfo().  Perhaps we could introduce a '@cocoon-version
{2.1|2.0.x}' tag to the cwiki syntax. So Wiki.jsp?page=CocoonCaching

@cocoon-version 2.0.4  -> has URL '/wiki/2.0.4/CocoonCaching'.
@cocoon-version 2.1'   -> has URL '/wiki/2.1/CocoonCaching'.
