I think this has to be done, and it can be done. We could invent a way
to flag stuff that we remove because it ceased to exist as such, and
could thereby get some actual history information in. But most of the
stuff we currently delete gets deleted because it was wrong --- be it
newbies, import/software bugs or vandalism.
