[PWS] PWS only meant for Swiki?

By the way, as one who has only recently become alive to the virtues 
of PWS and built-in Swiki support, let me humbly state what a big 
deal this stuff is.  The amount of functionality for the effort to 
build one is amazing, and the extensibility is unparalleled.

I am curious how, in practice, a Swiki performs.  In particular, how 
practical are these things for communities of several hundred people?

And one simple, silly (in the sense I should probably be able to 
figure this out for myself without much effort) question.  Since 
Swikis keep lots of past information available to support rollback of 
pages, how do I control the bilge when I am comfortable that I have a 
stable state?  In particular, how can i get my Swiki to dump old 
information?  Will Swiki automatically dump rollbacks after a fixed 
number of edits?
