--- Comment #1 from Bill Mitchell <> ---
I commented a couple of times elsewhere that as a practical matter the
backlinks are useless -- no user (well, maybe one in a thousand) is going to
know which of the hundreds (or even tens, or even three or four) backlinks to
click. To me, it'd be better to let the browser's facility for going back to
the previous page handle this and just display a single clickable <sup>^</sup>
symbol -- that'd likely require changes elsewhere to make this facility
available to Mediawiki extensions, though (it's been a long time since I looked
at internals re this and I've forgotten), and it might raise security issues
(though I can't think of any offhand). 

Personally, I never try to figure out which backlink to click -- I use the
browser's "back" button. ~~~~
