FWIW, when people say "you have to patch pmwiki.php", it's almost
never true in an absolute sense.  One can always create a replacement 
function for LinkPage() in a local script, and have it be used 
instead of PmWiki's normal LinkPage() function.  Thus

    $LinkFunctions['<:page>'] = 'MyCustomLinkPage';

will call MyCustomLinkPage (instead of the built-in LinkPage() function)
whenever PmWiki needs to generate a link to another page.
