Oh jeepers, please don't do this to me. Yet *another* interpretation
for double brackets?
"Well, double brackets are used to be able to specify alternate
text for a link, except when they begin with 'image', in which case
they're an alternate syntax for image URLs to let you specify alt=
text, and you can't specify alt= text if the image is being used as
the text of a link, because PmWiki doesn't support the [[WikiWord
[[image http://foo.com/cgi-bin/mapper.cgi?parm1 alt=My_Map]]]] markup,
not that anyone can figure out what it's supposed to be anyway, and
if using the brackets you have to figure out yourself if you want
align=left or align=right added to float the image because PmWiki
can't add it for you... sigh."
We might as well just write <img src='....' alt='...' />.

The spaces are somewhat complicated but not *that* complicated.
