Good point. Something bothered me in talk about [[/something.jpg]] as a 
relative link, but didn't have time to answer. Dominique is right on the 
problem, but I doubt the solution is the right one :) Since (if using clean 
URLs), authors see stuff like http://path.to/pmwiki/Group/Page, and 
[[./something.jpg]] would seem to be relative to a directory called Page 
under Group, under the pmwiki directory.

So IMHO, using the IMap is still the best way to go.
