Summary: "Go" result should be available through the API
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.16-svn
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: API

There should be a way in the API to tell which page you'll be redirected to
when you type a certain string in the search box and click "Go". It's possible
to get this by requesting
and getting the target of the resulting HTTP 302, but this'll return an HTTP
200 with search results when there is no title match for 'something' and this
is hacky. The API should have some way of requesting this so it'll be cleaner
and not run a full-blown search with the associated bandwidth usage if there is
no title match.
