Do not show redirects

This patch exludes redirects from the list. But I cannot estimate if this will
melt the servers although on WMF wikis it's cached special page.

Note: Only redirects with more than 1 revision are shown at the moment.

Mark pages as redirect

This alternative patch marks pages as redirect. Same restrictions (melting
servers?).

There are cached special pages that do a lot worse things than that

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
