Permalink to specific version of a page

Is there a way to determine the url for the current version of a page (i.e. if the page were subsequently edited, and pages using the permalink would be directed to the previous version).

It is possible to determine the urls for previous versions of a page within the page history, however the url for the current version of a page always points to the latest version.

It is possible to do this for attachments. Is there any way to determine the correct url for pages?

My workaround (until I hear of a better way to do it):

If you want to specifically link to the current version of a page (rather than always link to the latest version):

  1. Edit the page and make a minor edit (i.e. an extra space somewhere) and add a comment when saving the page (something like - edited to obtain page version only)
  2. Go into the page history
    1. If the comment is not shown in the history, then the save was not successful (i.e. the change was too small to discern)
  3. Determine the url of the previous version of the page - this is the url to link to
