Code follows shortly.

Anything's possible (that's why coding is so addictive). I hadn't thought =
of it, but there is no reason why the script can't look for ([[)?(($=
GroupLinkPattern)|($FreeLinkpattern)) and react appropriately. In which =
case [[{{free link}}]] would automatically behave as expected. Let me see =
what I can come up with. JR

And right now, to make a free link trail, you'd have to know to write * =
Group/Free_Link -- but I imagine that's surmountable also.

Can you send me the code for the local customization?  The syntax
looks clean/clever enough that I may just make it an official part
of PmWiki unless I get lots of objections from others.  I hadn't
really thought about just doing a string substitution converting
free links to valid wiki word patterns; I was thinking that I'd have
to modify the wiki word pattern itself.  Very clever!

One question--what if I want a link to {{free link}} page but with
different text?  Would I have to know to use [[Group/Free_Link different
text]]?  I.e., [[{{free link}} different text]] wouldn't work?
