Wiki include macro: Include specific revision
Wiki include macro should be able to include a specific Wiki page revision. For example:
Includes WikiPage at revision 312 in project "myproject".

This is actually an important feature. Let me explain.
We use Wiki for writing documentation and the way we do it is to write small modular Wiki pages suitable for inclusion. This means for example that for a given customer we can mix and match relevant documentation using the include-macro.
However, the way the include macro works is to include the latest version of the Wiki page. This is an inconvenience because then there is never a way to generate the exact version of the Manual that includes other pages, since the include macro always includes the latest version of the underlying pages. By explictly setting a version number for the include macro, this means we can retrieve version of the collected Manual.
This has also the major benefit that the version number of the Manual that includes other pages have meaning, i.e. updating the modular pages forces updating the Manual to link to the explicit version of underlying Wiki page.
