           Summary: wbparsevalue cannot process strings that contain a
                    pipe "|" caharcter
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: unspecified

wbparsevalue accepts multiple strings to parse in one request. These are passed
as a pipe-separated list via the values parameter. This means that the strings
themselves cannot contain a pipe.

To solve this, we could:

a) deprecate the values parameter, and introduce a value (singular) parameter,
which wouldn't have said problem.

b) encode the values in json (using a different parameter name, or a
compatibility switch)
