The whole thing is about fixing a UI weirdness. A navigation menu is not 
designed in the first place to redirect the user to another site without 
warning - it makes the interaction with the site unpredictable - so I 
believe that it is a good thing that the current menu doesn't allow 
those kinds of links. For that functionality you should use a box marked 
as "External links"... or integrate the wiki inside the site.
