Yeah, personally, since this works for external links

[http://foo.bar.com My label]

Why can't this work for internal wiki links?

[MyWikiPage My label]

I end up having to use this, 

[wiki:Self:MyWikiPage My label]

but that puts an InterWiki icon in front of the link, which is
misleading (but apparently not a bug), so I have to use this

[:MyWikiPage:My label]

Which was not only undocumented AFAIK, but completely inconsistent with
any of the previous syntax. 

Can we possibly fix this? I love Moin, but this is one area where
phpwiki does this much better, and I don't like that.
