I'm currently pondering different ways to achieve the desired result (of delayed deleting). I'm not sure I'll have a solution in place for the 0.30 release, however I'll do my best.

RE delayed deletion: wikis supporting page clusters use the DeletedPage cluster for pages in the deletion queue. Others similarly require the complete page body to be replaced by a keyword.

That's what I was considering doing TomMewett, since a good number of the features I've implemented have been inspired by Oddmuse

Version 0.40 will have delayed delete capability.

I should have added how that functionality will work...
To delete a page, simply place DeletedPage on the first line of the page. You can remove all content after that, as well. After $PurgeDeletedPage time is reached (default set to 2 weeks I believe) the page, all of its previous revisions, and any mention of it in rc.log will be removed.
