Hi everyone again,
Having thought some more about how it is possible to make editing
[[Middle Earth]] easier once again, I've invented another solution
to the problem: aliases.
Here's how it should work: we create a new Alias namespace.
Inside it we'd have entries like [[Alias:Middle Earth]]. This page
would look like the following:
Bilbo Middle Earth/Bilbo
Faramir Middle Earth/Faramir
Frodo Middle Earth/Frodo
Gandalf Middle Earth/Gandalf
In general, the idea would be to match the ad-hoc "short" versions
of the page titles to the "long" version. Each page that that would
want to use the alias, will have to include a directive, explicitly
telling it to, e.g. #alias [[Middle Earth]].
This way we could both keep the longer (and the more informative)
names like [[Middle Earth/Elrond]] and still make short linking
(like [[Elrond]]) possible from the pages that require this.
What do you think about it?
