I'm sure it wouldn't be that complicated. I didn't consider it because
in a "normal" Wiki it wouldn't make sense.

But it would be very useful in the pmwiki.org installation because we
could search the whole wiki for links to certain pages. Especially for
changes to the documentation that's essential IMO.

Therefore I propose that pmwiki.org treats Pmwiki: and Cookbook:
interwiki links like local links to make them visible in link=
searches (i.e. backlinks).

What do the maintainers think about?

BTW: I fully agree that StyleGuidelines should moved to (merged with)
DocumentationGuidelines. It makes no sense to have two pages.
