WordPress Revision Control: Manage or Disable edit history in WP
Among many new exciting features, WordPress 2.6 released the ability to store each and every revision of your posts, like an elaborate update history. Now this can be a pretty useful feature if you are only making substantive changes to your articles, but if you change a "the" or a preposition, this can be overkill.
The suggested workaround to disable this revision function is to enter a variable in your wp_config.php file. But this takes away the functionality from the entire blog.
I discovered a superb plugin today that makes this process very simple. It allows you to define the setting from the WordPress aministration interface on a Global basis. That is, to
- Disable All revisions for all posts/pages
- And override on a per-page/post basis.
For example, I can set Revisions to Disabled globally, and then enable it to store say 5 revisions for a Specific page(Without affecting any other pages).

This is not MU compatible yet (untested).
