It is sometimes desirable to include wiki markup directly into the sidebar, as reported on
MediaWiki should allow it without needing to change the code.

Backwards compatible sidebar syntax expansion to allow wikitext for entries with the form {{text}}, taken from MediaWiki:text.
The parser usage is probably not correct, but shouldn't need half dozen lines, either.

Updated patch

Patch updated to trunk. What do you think, Siebrand?


This syntax seems pretty odd; {{text}} would seem to indicate template expansion of Template:Text, whereas this sounds a little more like it would look like {{int:text}}?
