Well, it would be a big problem (esp. in the future) to generate
different links depending on the link target's mimetype (that would have
a big performance impact as you would have to determine the mimetype of
every link target to render a page).
Thus, the only place we could handle stuff differently in an automatic
way is on the rendered view of the link target. But if you just look at
a non-wiki-page item, wouldn't it be strange to automatically trigger a
download? What if the user did not want that? Then he would get a
auto-downloaded no matter what...
If someone has an idea, feel free. :)
