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
