Well, I don't want all (or even most) of the links in the PmWiki group
to be freelinks, because the pages in the PmWiki group are often new
users' first exposure to the wiki markup language or the place they
turn to for markup examples.
And I don't want to do per-group customizations in the default configuration
because that confuses admins also ("hey, I turned off WikiWords but
they're still enabled in the PmWiki group even though I didn't create a
local/PmWiki.php file...what's going on behind the scenes?").
I'm open to other suggestions, but so far I think the current setup
best follows the principle of least surprise.
