Summary: Include a "default" value in the interwiki table for
                    an interwiki prefix with no value
           Product: Wikimedia
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: shell
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Interwiki links

We should add an extra "default" parameter to the interwiki table so that
interwiki prefixes that don't contain a string after the colon point to the
mainpage of the target site, if the default value can be specified. For
example, the valueless [[bugzilla:]] currently points towards but if we were able to specify
(or choose not to specify) a url string for a hypothetical extra parameter
named "default" the [[bugzilla:]] would instead point to the string. And if the
string were it would not confuse us with an
error message of some sort (if it were also some other site). This is somewhat
similar to {{#if:{{{1}}} in
The bugzilla prefix is just an example, this could extend to other sites like
google as well.
