There is an "ID number" for each version, though. One finds it through
the "permanent link" or "permalink" in the left hand menu. For
instance, http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Sk%C3%A4nk_kunskap&oldid=499775
is the current Swedish version of "Give the gift of knowledge", but
the link will always lead to this version even when the page is
changed. I know too little of the tech stuff to know if the task is
best solved with template wizardry or a link to someplace else where
one can run a script, but it must absolutely be doable.
