Thanks.  The change to the #redirect processor was pretty trivial.  Instead
of assuming it's a WikiName, I check the first and last characters to see if
they are '[' and ']', respectively:

    if pi_redirect[:1] =='[' and pi_redirect[-1:] == ']':
        webapi.http_redirect(request, string.strip(pi_redirect[1:-1]))
        webapi.http_redirect(request, '%s/%s?action=show&redirect=%s' % (
            urllib.quote_plus(self.page_name, ''),))

(The above is in MoinMoin/Page.py, at least in 1.0.)

Since this is the argument to a #redirect and isn't rendered in the common
case, there's no real need for the full [url text] functionality.
