I would like to propose PLIP 243 for Plone 3.3: Replace workflow history
viewlet with content history viewlet.


The 'history' list in a document view does not show the full history of
an object but only the workflow history. We are hiding versioning
history information behind a (painfully ugly) history form. This can be
confusing, and makes it harder to access versioning information.


I propose two things:

1. instead of the workflow history viewlet use the content history
   viewlet that is already in plone.app.layout trunk. This viewlet mixes
   workflow and versioning information in a single overview and has
   convenient options to get more information about versioning changes.

2. remove the history content action and use the content history viewlet
   as a way to access the history information.


Most of the implementation is already done. Ask DannyB for a
demonstration if you are at the conference or attending the UI sprint :)
