[Mediawiki-l] How to change [[article]]s into [[article|articles]] automagically?

I've asked this before on list (but with a slightly different approach 
:) and received no answer. Let me try again explaining in a better form 
(I hope).

Some articles at MusicWiki were written in such way that endings were 
left  after a link to other article. This is a real example:
"(...) record of [[song]]s or [[music]] (...)"

When MediaWiki renders the page, it show a link to Song article but it 
doesn't include final "s" as part of the link (as if the contributor has 
typed [[song|songs]] instead of [[song]]s). This is a listed feature (at 
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Editing#Links.2C_URLs - Endings are 
blended into the link), however.

I was wondering if I need to enable something or configure something so 
my MediaWiki instalation could behave like Meta.

Any help would be very appreciated
