Actually, I'm looking for a more general solution than the ones listed
above--I'm trying to figure out a way to control the order of items in
the LinkPatterns array.  I have a few ideas, but nothing leaps out at me
yet.  I'll probably solve it later tonight or tomorrow sometime.

I thought about that. The best idea I came up with was that you don't =
actually have to control the order of all items, just the exceptions. So I =
thought of an array that basically says 'evaluate this pattern after this =
one', eg

 =3D $WikiWordPattern;

says process Group/Page patterns after you process WikiWords. Then it =
would shuffle the $LinkPatterns array to make sure the predecessor rules =
are followed... But I didn't see how to avoid possible circular =

Taking it a bit further (I don't know the syntax),

says use how to format it and to format it after WikiWords.
