CommonsDelinker changes links on the original summary to point to commons by
prepending w:commons: to the pagename.  
a) The w: is unnecessary. All projects I tested do have commons: as a direct
interwiki link. No need to proxy it through wikipedia. Foregins sites are
unlikely to have wikipedia as w: interwiki and would want to use a different
prefix anyway.  
b) If the link already began with a colon, the resulting link has double colons
w:commons::Image:Foo.jpg It is a functional link, but uglier.
