[pmwiki-users] subpages.php corrupted! (vincent)

I'd very much like to see some development of this script.
It suits a need I have down to the ground,
there are a few quirks and idiosyncrasies (some already documented on the
recipe page) that would make it really fit properly in pmwiki.
thanks in advance
