Right now tha page is not rendered and an error is printed at the bottom
of the page when you view it.  Ideally, this integration should be
tighter.  Perhaps a "test" button that could pop up the rendered page?

This was mentioned before...

Zope has a rudimentary "change history" that can be used to undo bad
changes, but it is crude as a versioning system.

There is also a Zope product called FileSystemSite in which your site
is stored in a directory on the filesystem, rather than in the ZODB.
Such a directory can simultaneously be a CVS/arch/darcs repository.
Presumably it wouldn't be that hard to get Zope/ZWiki/LatexWiki to
ignore the CVS directory.
