FlexWiki should support linking to topic that have
just one word. Often the vocabulary of a group of
users of FW will include terms that are just one
word. It should be possible to have quick and easy
linking to such topics without having to use the []
free link syntax.

A simple enhancement to the existing system would be
to simply recognize these words (as long as they
start with, say, a capital letter). This would work
well except that it's quite common to have
capitalized words that aren't links. FW would then
produce the "click here to create the page"
appearance in the UI and this would be a huge
distraction. So the solution is to have OneWordLinks
that don't produce this artifact for the page if it
doesn't exist.
