Adds a nontracking markup for category links.

Description

This adds a new link markup that allows linking to categories without putting the linking page into the category. The markup looks like this:

[[:Category:Fictional]]

Which would create a link to the category named CategoryFictional.

The purpose of this markup is to avoid ugly workarounds like putting a space between Category and the rest of the name to avoid linking.

  • owner changed from unassigned to DotMG
  • status changed from new to assigned
  • component changed from unspecified to core

Please note that in our current development (trunk, future 1.1.7), you can link to a category by writing full URL, as

[[http://wikkawiki.org/CategoryFictional CategoryFictional]]

However, I agree that a simpler markup is welcome.
