IMHO, [[/something.jpg]] is not so intuitive since having a path beginning 
with a slash is the (only) way to specify absolute path (even for urls) --  
in this case we'd better talk about "local absolute links".

If you decide to make PmWiki handle such links, I would enjoy also *real* 
relative links aka.: [[./something.jpg]] where the reference directory (./) 
is the one containing pmwiki.php.
