It's already in beta8 -- on pmwiki.org if you hover over the author's
name in the history it displays the IP address.  I should be able to add
a similar feature into 1.0.

I'm also considering a cookbook recipe that will allow us to automatically
add addresses to a blocklist by clicking on links in the page history output.
