I haven't used it that way, but this is what you might try:

   1. Install rename script (http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/RenamePage)
   2. Use clean urls for website (
   3. Create Draft group
   4. Make Draft group public
   5. Update your "robots.txt" file so that search engines don't index Draft
   group. Something like "Disallow: /Draft"

That way users could create drafts in Draft group, but those documents would
not be indexed by search engines. Then, when a document is ready, use the
?action=rename function (from rename script) to rename doc Draft/DocName to
Main/DocName (or whatever group you like). I think that accomplishes what
you need.
