changed summary to reflect that this isn't just about one special page, but all
special pages that list articles

Also, it might be good to have it number the links like it does here
(http://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:BrokenRedirects&limit=500&offset=0).
This is already implemented in Special:BrokenRedirects (as well as the number of
entries on the special page being shown at the top) but not in
Special:Protectedpages for example.

Comment #3 could be accomplished simply by (a) changing the <ul></ul> tags
around the list of links to <ol></ol> or (b) giving the <ul> element
a "class=something" attribute so that users could change the display in their
personalized .css files. And doing that would probably accomplish most of what
the original report was looking for.

This should already be long since done, unless I'm greatly misunderstanding the request. Special:WhatLinksHere lists transclusions, redirects to and actual pagelinks to the target. It can be filtered by all 3 (although that is more recent).

I will use this bug to request also for count of total articles in special pages
which has list of articles, such as Special:Wantedpages,
Special:Wantedcategories and Special:Uncategorizedpages. I found that special
pages will inform the correct count of articles if the count is <1000 (look
http://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Istimewa:Deadendpages) but it will failed to inform
the count if the count is>1000 (look
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Deadendpages&limit=1000)

This is just a longstanding issue of Special pages being database heavy. On WMF sites, many of these are cached at 1000 entries per-batch. Not ideal, but whatever. Not a part of this bug (there's probably several bugs out for this and related problems).

Comment 3 is out of scope of the original request (and I'm not 100% sure what is being asked there). I think we can mark this thing FIXED.

Doofus. I see what's going on. Reopening.

All I know is I vow to clean up all the spam on Wikipedia,
so I go to
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Cleanup-spam
but I can't tell if there are 66, 666, 6666, 66666 spams I should clean up.

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
