Description: In PmWiki 1, references of the form WikiWord#anchor used to create a link to #anchor on WikiWord. To do this in PmWiki 2 means writing [[WikiWord#ref]].

If only for backward compatibility, it would be useful to support this pattern on bare WikiWords.

I think I've decided against bare WikiWord#anchor for the time being, similar to how I'm not supporting bare WikiWord?action=edit. If anyone needs the backward compatibility we can enter a cookbook recipe for it. --Pm
