I checked svn logs, there has never been a default value for action variable name.

Now, the wiki says

"The 'ActionVar' property of the module can be used to set the name of the request variable to use."

Which is correct.

I can see where you got the idea that "action" is the default action variable name, so maybe
it is best to edit that page and add a note to that section.

We could obviously introduce a default for this variable, but I am afraid it could cause problems 
with existing code.
