Make it possible to link Custom Template: UNC at least.
Because, everyone has custom UNC link which some does replacing symbols too sometimes.
For example; files that has space it will replace to %20, or some file that has weird symbol semi-colon in it (I know, that's weird). etc.

These links have no place on a public wiki, so really this should be provided by an extension aimed at private wikis rather than inside MW-VE for all users.
