Also, I would expect Trac to *not* update wiki-internal links -- it
doesn't update ticket ‘components’ when a component is renamed or

Several parts of the Trac interface that you would be unable to modify
link to these pages.  (Most notably, there is a link to
‘WikiFormatting’ above the ‘Comment’ entry box on every ticket.)
