--- Comment #2 from Scott Martin <sc...@urbigenous.net> ---
Sure; there's already a {{What links here}} on enwp, which is just a wrapper
for [[Special:WhatLinksHere/Page name]]. You can't pass a namespace to it.

An upgraded version would instead generate a link to a fully specified URL. As
you note, the parameter name would need to be passed through {{urlencode:}} on
the template side.

Okay, all that said, I've just been informed that there is a hacky way to get a
namespace index from its alias, by giving a fake page name to
{{NAMESPACENUMBER}} - {{NAMESPACENUMBER:Namespace you're interested in:X}}. And
I'm going to use that technique right now. So I guess this request is moot and
I don't mind it being WONTFIXED on that basis - although I think it would be
cool to have a non-hacky way to use a namespace alias directly.
