Depends what you want to do. We wrote an extension for one of our 
wikis that lets you do the following:

- suppose there are some pages you are interested in tracking

- you add a directive to each page, along the lines of (PmWiki 1)

    =notify {{Christian}}

- every time one of these pages gets updated, the page 
  Notify.Christian is updated (think Christian's personal 
  RecentChanges page)

- you could Notify.Christian?action=rss (I think...)

- the =notify {{Christian}} is rendered in browse as


  so you get a trail through your pages of interest

- we use it for assigning keywords to pages and tracking
  which pages use what keywords

Is that sort of what you want to do? If so, I can add it
to the Cookbook.
