Are you sure it works, I've tried on a couple of computers and it's the same.
That is it will not *verify* that what you have written is a redirection.

You will get the same list as if you wrote

a numbered thingy [[link here]]

See:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Village_pump&action=edit

that is it will be formated as a numberedlist. This is not what it should look
like instead the preview should look like this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Village_pump&redirect=no

If I remember rightly, trhe redirect graphic/message is added in Article.php
when the page is discovered to be a redirect but &redirect=no is in effect. I
always thought it would make more sense if it was in Parser.php so that whenever
a page was displayed that should be a redirect, it would appear with the symbol,
allowing you to check your syntax with a preview. But yes, I should have just
fixed it myself if I was that bothered :/

Testcase
http://yi.wiktionary.org/w/index.php?title=pruv.png&redirect=no

shows a redirect to an image in the syntax
#REDIRECT [[image:foo]]
and *not*
#REDIRECT [[:image:foo]]

(In reply to comment #2)
Yes how silly. On preview it interprets the # as a numbered list, despite the correct REDIRECT formatting.
One has to go double check that he is sure he got the formatting correct, despite the just plain wrong
preview, and then muster his courage to hit the Save button anyway.

Yes, sorry to need to complicate the PHP code more, but still: looks bad, feels bad.
