Interesting. Certainly much better than my suggested markup change.

This recipe replaces the MakePageName function with its own version
The difference seems to be that with it a target string is split
either by a dash '/' or a dot '.', but only if the dot is not
followed by a space (which is exactly what we want).
The other difference is the line in var $MakePageNamePatterns:
    "/\\. /" => ' ',   # dot-space to space

But when I comment it out, I still get the same links, so I wonder if
it is needed at all?

Would the new target string splitting rule not be good as PmWiki
default? Allowing dot-followed-by-space generally?
