Oh, and I need to query based on WHEN the page was deleted, not the date of the deleted
revision, as the API does. Is scrapping the Special:Log/delete page the only way?

Subject: [MediaWiki-l] How to get a list of RECENT deleted pages for a namespace
The API does not allow one to get a list of deleted revisions for a namespace sorted 1st
by date and using the drstart and drend parameters. Basically, I need to use
drstart/drend in mode 3 and sorted by date most recent first. I only need recent
deletions, not all deletions since the wiki was created. Is there any way to get this
won't work because it's not sorted by date first and I would have to get the
entire list of all pages ever deleted just to find out which ones were deleted recently.
