You could try this markup definition as a replacement to the free
link markup [[free links]] (watch out for inadvertent line breaks due to
email software):

## [[free links]] without group
  "Keep(MakeLink(\$pagename,str_replace('. ',' ',PSS('$1')),PSS('$1'),'$2'),'L')");

Now a link like [[Franklin D. Roosevelt]] displays as
'Franklin D. Roosevelt' but links to page 'FranklinDRoosevelt'
in the current group. Note that the 'dot-space' is replaced by a
space, so a dot followed by a space is eliminated. That safeguards
somewhat links like [[Main.WikiSandbox]], where the group part will
be honoured, because it is not followed by a space.

To get 'Franklin D. Roosevelt' display as title of the page
'FranklinDRoosevelt' it still needs the insertion of a (:title :)
markup, but at least the initial link will lead to a correct page
