Currently, the links on diff pages (such as the link to the right-hand user's
user page) do not have ids. As such, many tools developed to interact with the
wiki (such as js tools and external tools, such as VandalProof), rely upon the
inherent odering of these links to determine which link correlates to, for
instance, the right-hand user's userpage. This information is then used for a
variety of purposes, the most simple of which is simply adding the username to
edit summaries automatically. When the ordering of these links changes, such as
after the "Undo" link was added, every script that relies upon the order of
these links breaks.
I would like to request that id's be added to these links, most especially to
the links to the relative userpages and the rollback link, such that their
values can be accessed by simply using getElementById and such that dependent
scripts will no longer break when further links are added or removed. Thanks.
