Ask, and ye shall receive.


Had been pondering this myself even before Marcus asked, and finally
got around to doing it. The required Javascript turned out to be a bit
more involved than what I expected when I started, but rather
interesting to code.

AutoSave sends updates via XMLHttpRequest and extends PmWiki's default
draft versioning ability to support automatically saving pages. I
aimed for something as un-intrusive as GMail's auto-save, and I would
appreciate any bug reports or suggestions for improvements...
