Good call!

I like this feature.

After perusing some KFV sections, I noticed markup such as

||[[Hardy-kernel-drivers-dio-Makefile|Makefile]] ...

The script would output an alias of "Ubuntu-hardy-Makefile" instead of
the more readable "Makefile".  It seems that the reader would already be
aware of "Ubuntu-hardy" since is generally visible elsewhere on any page
with a list of files.  Am I missing something?  I feel obliged to
mention usability issues for those rare times I consider them. :)

In any case, if we are to have a *consistent look* on web pages,
reformatting some aliases is unavoidable.  While consistency can be
overstressed, I think it serves to inspire confidence in a
*verification* project.  Luckily, since this is just a cosmetic issue,
it is easily scriptable (e.g., wget can post an updated wiki page).
