skipping versioning for small edits

4.26: adde/versioning/skipping versioning for small edits:
. while inputting a string,
when the normal rules of versioning are in play,
stopping to do a correction should
cause the string input to be terminated,
then the new command is a string replace .

. one way around that is [word modify mode]
that can suspend the versioning system
until you are finished editing a particular word;
and, it reduces the damage of the modification
to just a particular word,
so that the versioning system is less needed . 5.13:
. it doesn't consider the word saved by versioning
until you are actually getting into the next word .


4.12: adds/versiwiki:
. in wikipedia we often see "citation needed";
this reminded me of a need for versioning;
the default version is completely referenced:
it hides everything that needs a citation,
or that has a citation that doesn't apply .
. if you want to see flagged content
(original work, contested material)
then you click the view-all button .
. we can also extend that idea
to have buttons for many versions:
show original content, or show controversial .
. when the controversial view is shown
it also shows the tags people have added:
pornographic, hate speech, ethnocentric, etc .
