remember that the offending use case involves a string meant to appear in "=",
something like:
> {{A|http://domain.lol/some.cgi?time=money}}

so for this to be helpful where it matters the new template behavior must take
"foobar=World" in its entirety as the first unnamed parameter {{{1}}} if/when
the template contains no references to parameter {{{foobar}}}. so the output
would have to be:
> Hello MediaWiki foobar=World!

------------------------------------------

one thing i noticed, wiki-links are special in this regard:
> {{A|[[Foobar=World|Example link 1]]}}
here the entire link is interpreted as parameter {{{1}}}.

but external links are not:
> {{A|[http://domain.lol/?Foobar=World Example link 2]}}
this input is interpreted as one parameter named 
> [http://domain.lol/?Foobar=
with value
> World Example link 2]

seems like the easiest thing would be to make both cases "special" and (beyond
consideration as part of a parameter name).
