Summary: AntiBot GenericFormEncoding prevents editing via API
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: Normal
         Component: wikidiff2

When editing via API (using GET request and application/x-www-form-urlencoded 
parameters) GenericFormEncoding prevents editing and writes to the log: AntiBot plugin AntiBot_GenericFormEncoding hit: <no action> [[<no
title>]] "{|| some wikitext"

1) it would be useful to have some more information via the API which extension
failed (and, if possible, why)
2) Either extensions should assume less about the how the edits are done (not
always POST etc.) or use of some other hook should be introduced here to
disregard API edits.
