So, right now, when we have a broken link in a page, it gets rendered
The problem here is that we're not differentiating between creating a
new page and editing an existing page. It's uncommon but not impossible
that someone creates [[New page]] while I'm looking at this link, and
when I click it to start a new page, there's text in the textarea.
IWBNI we had a *different* action for creating new pages than for
editing existing pages.
On getting action new, we could do things like:
* Show the page, if it's been created since the person fetched the
* Show some set of instructions on how (or why) to start a new
page, and give some other possibilities (I think the [[meta:new
page page]] discusses this).
* Do some cool functionality, like _new_page_templates_ (create
new pages with some existing format already filled in).
But we can't do anything interesting with new pages unless we know
they're new pages. So, I'd like to change action=edit to action=new for
