I cannot believe it! You are saying using page IDs just does not make sense? To
answer your question: YES, I want to utilize space efficiency and prefer to use
page IDs instead of pagenames. Satisfied?

Can you answer my previous question that if there is a logical reason why a
defunct pageid (0 for deleted pages) is returned and not the old ID? Can you
not see that my request is ONLY for delete logs?
