[Pmwiki-users] PmWiki Free Links

BTW, I *am* planning to do a major rewrite of the WikiWord/PageName 
code internally within PmWiki, and it's likely that the result will
include support for free links and some other items.  If anyone has 
suggestions or requests for WikiWord markup changes, filename changes, 
or how they are rendered, now would be a good time to mention them.
This will actually be needed to properly implement uploads/attachments,
believe it or not.

I do expect the resulting code to be able to support free links, and
the ability for non-existent page names with spaces in them to be
rendered as "(No Such Page)?" instead of "No Such Page?", as well
as lots of other cool features that are floating in my head.  :-)

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
