I'll give it a try tonight...

Yes Hans, I was a bit too short in describing the matter. It does not
break the regular [[target | +]] markup.
Instead, the [[target | + |: tooltip :]] markup does not work as
expected from regular pmwiki user.
Technically said, it does not "break" anything, but the bare expectation.
As far as I'm concerned, such a "plus" markup comes quite handy, in
that I use a multilanguage site: this way links are automatically
adapted, in that they take the page title. You can see it at my test
page, as always.
If the plus could work it would be nice.
But you already created a very nice tool, in any case.
