The script reports if the page in wiki.d has been modified, can display and 
let me edit the latest version in wiki-markup (I didn't get that last time), 
and update or revert the version in wikilib.d. Then it can update the repo.

What I meant by "manually" is that I personally have to look at the current 
page to see if it is ok.[1]

Patrick agreed to update the tool to also display text-diffs between the 
wiki.d and the wikilib.d versions. Right now, after many months of changes, 
text-diffs will be huge and impractical, but after we review and update these 
pages, newer changes will be smaller and diffs will be easier to use.


[1] I can use some help. If people from the community have the time and are 
willing to help out, we could review all PmWiki/* pages and fix them with an 
edit summary like "Ok for a release". This will be much faster. (Other ideas 
are welcome too.)
