Feature Request: Unlimited Article-Names (and sef-urls AND a <title> in one stroke)

Description (last modified by BrianKoontz) (diff)
I'm quiet new to Wikka but I like it for its simpleness and for doing everything I need through very simple concepts. But there is one thing (or two) I really don't like: these camelcase-names.
When I type an url in my browser like " http://my.wikka-install.tld/hello world" the browser automatically turns it into http://my.wikka-install.tld/hello%20world and wikka (or is it apache?) in turn converts %20 back to a space and asks me:
This page doesn't exist yet. Maybe you want to create it?
And 'create' is linked to http://my.wikka-install.tld/hello%20world/edit. This is half of the thing I wish! When the edit link is clicked the 'hello world' is checked for being a valid wikiname and that fails of course.
If spaces, lowercase-only words, and maybe some more characters would be allowed in article names, we had search-engine-friendly urls and there would be no need to parse a title from a heading within the article. Links could look like this:
[[ 'hello world' ]], [[ 'Nice %27WikiNames%27' ]] (the latter would render as <a href=" http://my.wikka-install.tld/Nice%32%27WikiNames%27">Nice 'WikiNames'</a>), [['hello world' Hallo Welt]], ...
The old links could work as always without a need to change anything.
What do you think? Wouldn't be these improvements (advantages? - please excuse my english) be worth the efforts neccesary to make this possible?
