I had a hard time figuring out the proposal at first, reading this
solution explained the proposal pretty clearly. I guess that means my
head's in the PmWiki code well enough to understand this better than
English? :-)

I think this is probably the best solution. It leads me to try
(:[[markup]]:), which leads to Main.Markup when tried on
Main.WikiSandbox. I know if I type [[markup]]s the link will be
'markups' and lead to Main.Markup. What if (:[[markup]]:) behaved
similarly? That would allow a '(:markup:)' link to 'Terms.Markup. I
admit that this is a change to PmWiki, which is not Pm's goal. But, it
woudl be light enough and would allow a way of linking all the
directives to a relevant support page in PmWiki.

Apart from that slight suggested change (I can't call it an
improvement), I think Pm's further build on this point has shown how
there is a solution already available.
