This will let you have a page called [[Apple iTunes]] or [[Novell NetWare]]
or [[Malcolm McLaren]] and titles 'just work'. It doesn't support names 
starting with a lower case letter though, for the reasons Patrick cites.

The big difference is that instead of replacing spaces with null, it
replaces them with _ then removes the _ on output. It also does its
best to treat WikiWord and Wiki_Word as synonyms.

If you try it, use a test site first, as you may not like the results...

in early January if you have questions)
