Addition to parser functions to test for broken links

Description:
As you can see from the link above, category navboxes will often create
redlinks. There is currently no easy way to deal with this, so I propose adding
an extension to the parser functions. While we can currently test for the
existence of a parametre ({{#if:{{{parametre|}}}|then|else}}), I propose that we
add the ability to test for the existence of an article ({{#if:[[link]]

thenelse}}).

Column Prototype
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.
