Just a couple of  things I noticed that I didn't see explicitly documented:
        * If there are multiple redirect directives in a page only the
          first one is used.
        * You can only redirect to wikipages within the wiki (i.e., you
          can't redirect to any random URL)

Regarding the features you mention on the wiki page, your implementation
seems spot on.

Oh, btw, on [[redirect:...]] vs. ReDirect:..., I prefer the former.
