It's silly to return the text of a topic when all that's needed is the metadata. I implemented it in the dumbest of ways: a call to readTopic, which returns both $meta and $text, and then returning $meta.
This is set as "Minor" but it is already committed to TWiki4 (even though it has no SVN numbers listed).
Suggest a) discarding/reverting/DEVELOP'ing this, or b) changing from "Closed" to "Waiting for Release" and from "minor" to "patch"?
I'd go for b), but it's up to TPTB.
Reverted due to tight deadline. SVN 9519
