The syntax of review as of 1.9a allows you to select a timeframe for
discussions as well as for your personal buffer. I've included the help
for review at the end of this message. I'm thinking of overloading
/review detach to allow you to review what happened in a discussion
between a disconnect and a connect.

Specifying a time frame with keywords such as FROM and TO has been
considered, but is on hold while I work on other issues. One easy
thing I will probably do soon is add TODAY and YESTERDAY as timeframes.

Usage: /REVIEW [discussion] [time] [USER userlist | EVENT eventlist]
/REVIEW [discussion] CLEAR | COUNT
The first format of /REVIEW allows a user to view the contents of his or
her review buffer, or to view the review buffer of a discussion. It allows
you to specify time frame for the review to cover, and to limit the review
to certain types of events or certain users.
Accepted values for time are SESSION, DETACH, and OLD. SESSION shows all
events since your current connection started. DETACH shows all events that
occured while you were detached. OLD will only show events from before you
detached. If time is omitted, the whole buffer will be shown.
The action of the second form of /REVIEW is determined by the keyword:
COUNT - Display the number of events in the review buffer
CLEAR - Remove all events from the review buffer. *
* To do this for a discussion, you must be a moderator of the discussion.
