About automatically finding a page... what if PmWiki displayed a warning 
in the header when you enter something like [[Basic editing]] but you 
actually end up at [[basic editing]]?

The text could say something like:

	The link you used does not match any page exactly, but this one
	page seems very close ("basic editing" v.s. "Basic editing")

Just a thought.
