Description: I think PmWiki's WikiWord implementation is a bit overzealous. It correctly knows to ignore all-capital abbreviations/acronyms like DVD, CD and TV, but if you make these plural like DVDs, CDs and TVs, then it thinks they ought to be linked.
It would be nice to see a good implentation of a "Glossary cookbook" for those problems, so users of PmWiki (not the admin) will not have every single word that looks like a wiki word, that has a small definition and are not worth a wiki page, to become one.
That would be nice because this is important to keep wiki administration and technical documentation with a wiki, sane.
I saw every other implementation like: Markup for plurals, acronyms, glossary, abbr ...
I think that a glossary like system would be nice to solve:
We might just want to redefine
