The "Comment" box on the edit page is the obvious place to state your
reason for reverting someone else's change.  If you need more space than
the wiki revision comment box provides (I don't know how many characters
that is in moinmoin off hand, but I think it's a few hundred), then it
becomes more of an issue.  Moinmoin doesn't maintain a parallel "Talk"
page namespace.  You can put your explanation directly onto the page
itself, if you think it will be of general interest.

In the case of the BurnCd page, I actually *do* think that it would be
of general interest to readers to have a paragraph explaining the limits
of wodim, and when not to use it.  As well as the other tools, if they
have important restrictions and limits.
