It would be useful to be able to search in the prior revisions of a page in two
* Search backwards to find the first time when a specified piece of text appears
(ie, when it was added)
* Search backwards to find the last time that a specified piece of text appears
(ie, when it was removed)
Ideally one day it would be great to be able to click on text and see who added.
But in the meantime, it would be great to simply be able to search for a phrase
like "He was a supporter of Hitler." and to be able to leap to the revision when
that text first appeared.
(a slightly souped up version might show a condensed history consisting of
groups of revisions where the phrase appears at least once followed by groups of
revisions where it doesn't appear at all)
More or less a duplicate of bug 639..."blame" for MediaWiki.
