There is a description, script and example of page drafts at

However, I think it's different from what Christian is suggesting.
It seems to me that draft / final and public / private are perhaps
orthogonal ideas. The same wiki may contain a public draft of one
page and a private final of another page. And a page may have both 
a draft and finished (saved) version; whereas if I understand
Christian correctly, a page is either public or private.

I will create a PITS entry, but would like to hear Christian's 
comments first, as I'm not sure whether it's one PITS or two.
