potlatch history has too many items

Description

While I am trying to revert a misconfigured street with potlatch, I can't get the latest correct version because potlatch shows all the minor edits creating this street. So I can get the version of November 2008, but not the version of June 2009.

I wish it would be possible to remove all these small edits from the database (if they are older than 3 months) and to filter the edits in order to display only one latest version by each contributor. At least it should be possible to ignore these edits which are less than one minute later than the previous one.

I was just about to log this problem (noticed while trying to see what an RR8 random edit had changed) when I noticed that it already had been logged.

An example way that shows the problem, if it helps, is: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/4927349/history

I'm guessing that "removing small edits from the database" should actually be "showing the most recent edits isntead of the least recent ones" above though (although I suspect that that's just a translation thing).

1.2c will thin out the menu by only showing every other edit (or every third edit, or whatever) if there are too many to fit on the screen.
