Part of me has difficulty reconciling %thumblink% (which uses the
wikistyle syntax) with making the image reference that follows into
a link (or a page link).  Somehow I think it ought to be a different
syntax, or else I need to be convinced that wikistyles should be
smart enough to change <img ...> into <a ...>....

I'd really prefer a different syntax, although I'm not sure what
it would be.  I'd even greatly prefer (:thumb Attach:Test/SomePhoto.jpg:)
over the use of %thumblink%.
