Tim Starling had done title cleanups for all malayalam wikis just after 5.1
normalization activated, to avoid title conflict he renamed all titles
those are using 5.0 chills by prepending 'Broken/'. So you can see those
We had restored those titles in ml.wikipedia, but not yet on ml.wiktionary

To answer my own question, no, it won't: it
will move all the 5.0
pages that have 5.1 redirects to pages named "Broken/ID:nnnn" and the
result is a huge mess.
Either the redirects must be deleted first, or the code in
cleanupTitles fixed to move over redirects.
Fixing cleanupTitles.php to allow moving pages over one-rev
self-redirects, just like with normal page moving, would IMHO be a good
idea anyway. The code can be adapted from Title::isValidMoveTarget()
and Title::moveOverExistingRedirect(). In fact, the former method could
probably be used as is -- while the situation in cleanupTitles is a bit
unusual, in that title normalization will cause the redirect to point to
itself, Title::isValidMoveTarget() seems to already have code in place
to handle that special case.
