My point was simply that in this scenario of including spaces, someone 
who *does* want WikiWords enabled on the site has to accept that 
"DocumentationIndex" cannot easily be the same as both 
[[DocumentationIndex]] and [[documentation index]] (since the
latter two refer to different pages).

I think these would continue to go the same page, as we would likely
be using case-insensitive urls as well...


Or, the MakePageLink function could be enhanced so that it takes
something like [[documentation pages]] and figures out the correct
case to use in the url based on the target page's name.
