Add option to exclude included/templated pages from Special:Lonelypages
Open, LowPublic

Description

Author: Andrew.Howat

Description:
If a page is templated into another page (e.g. page Bar contains {{:Foo}}) but Foo is unlinked to from anywhere else, Foo shows up in Special:Lonelypages.

Is it possible to change this behaviour so that it doesn't (e.g. {{:Foo}} is treated the same as [[Foo]])?

If not, or there is justifiable reasons to prevent this, could there be some additional functionality added to Special:Lonelypages that then allows a viewer of the page to switch on and off functionality to enable and disable the viewing of templated/included pages as Orphaned?

Is there a specific example for a template inclusion on some Wikimedia site that this request could be (re)tested with?

Yes! I was trying to look through all of wikitech's orphaned pages but the results are polluted by ~5,000 old "shell request" subpages so I can't see the end of the alphabetical results! I.e. from here on is just repetitive. https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:LonelyPages&limit=100&offset=600

It would be nice to have a new magic word that we could put/test in https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Shell_Access_Request to exclude those subpages.
