I don't know about putting that in the author's hands as much as
making it a wiki-wide setting.  I mean, when would an author want to
differentiate between "non-existent page with question mark" and
"non-existent page without question mark"?

In any case, you can change the link format for non-existing pages by
setting the $LinkPageCreateFmt variable to something appropriate. For

$LinkPageCreateFmt = 
   "<a class='createlinktext' href='\$PageUrl?action=edit'>\$LinkText</a>";

Or, since the existing $LinkPageCreateFmt variable puts the anchor on
the question mark in the "createlink" class, you could just use CSS to
hide it. Something like:

a.createlink { display:none; }

in your CSS file.

I'm sure there are other ways.
