Aklapper edited projects, added Phabricator (Upstream); removed Phabricator.

Workaround: Write [ #phab instead of [#phab.

This one would be harry to fix, due to the complex interaction of parser rules and the fact that [ is meaningful in remarkup syntax. I wouldn't expect this to ever work.

I don't think this is achievable or worth to investigate further - avoid using square brackets as they have a specific meaning, I'd say.
