--- Comment #2 from Nik Everett <neverett+bugzi...@wikimedia.org> ---
Wiktionary has 8 pages that all "near match" son with the current analysis
setup:
sơn
Son
són
son
sön
SON
søn
soñ

Even with my proposed near match change it still has three:
Son
son
SON

So I'm pretty sure that is a bad idea.  Another proposal: restore sorting by
the number of incoming links.  This would drop you on "son" as expected.

Another proposal: if there is more than a single "near match" then declare that
there are non and drop the user to the search page.  That will give them more
options and never _force_ them to the wrong page.  It may be less convenient. 
Also, it can be done with or without removing asciifolding.  Personally I'd
prefer to leave the folding in place so prefix matching, which really should
have folding, still looks sane.
