Patrick and Dan,

I agree with both of you - something is lacking but we need to allow  
both mechanisms to work.

I feel like RSS feeds and RecentChanges "miss" reporting events  
because RecentChanges only keeps the last "event" for each page.  I  
worked on the Cookbook MajorChanges (http://pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/ 
MajorChanges) to try to eliminate that problem and then had my RSS  
feed work off of my Site.AllMajorChanges page instead of  

I'll try the guid patch and see if that does anything to enhance my
