K, but I didn't do anything to customize the wiki filtering, that part 
was supposed to be handled already by the main {{activity}} code. I just 
added more constraints on messages. If events do leak, then it's a bug 
in the activity macro. Did you test it and encountered this problem?

K, I already added the method to the Java component. But currently only 
the author has the right to remove it, since there's no way to check if 
a user has admin rights from components. It can be done via a script 
with PR.
