Basically it works like this:
There are english content pages in WML and there are WMl specific stuff on
the repository, each language has it own subdir and the same three as the
english site. You can check if english revision has been changed by using an
special WML tag into other languages WML files with the english version on
which is based, thus you can easily check that, let's say spanish translation
for index.wml is based on revision 1.8 while original english version is
already 1.9 (or more).
This is basically handled into the CVS/SVN three and WML file. Generated HTML
are out of the scope, since they are the result/output of.

Would be great.

Yes, but the main problem I see is content translation, unless it's well
programmed and it manages to get the right content based on the right locale
it can be a mess. But it can be done, but as I said it envolves more effort
on get the thing done.
