Thanks for the pointer.

Doesn't work for me.  I tried this:

    navi_bar = ["[http://www.mojam.com/ MojamHome]",

and the first link was to a page called "[http://www.mojam.com/
MojamHome]", not to "http://www.mojam.com/" with text of "MojamHome".

Thanks, I stumbled upon that, but it seems to only to redirect within the
Wiki.  I may just tweak the redirect code to do a straight redirect instead
of an internal-to-the-Wiki redirect if the pagename starts with '[' and ends
with ']'.
