While I can agree that it could've worked with older PmWiki
versions, I really don't know how it could've done so and
still been "correct". It's just part of the standard url
specification that in order to pass a percent sign in a value
to a script, it has to be encoded in the url as '%25'.
So, if it's "something new", it's not intended to be. It's
always been my intent that query strings in PmWiki urls
follow the url specifications as closely as possible.
