[Mediawiki-l] Auto-populating page with template when its created

I have a MediaWiki page listing all the rivers of the world [not
really] as local hyperlinks. Whenever someone creates a "river page"
by clicking on the link, I want the page automatically populated with
a "river template".

Can I do this?

I realize I could pre-populate all the river pages with the river
template, but, of the one million river links, I only expect about
100K of them to ever be created, and it seems like a waste of space to
create 1 million template pages when I'll only need 100K.

We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying
to understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to
new ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
