Would be great to have backlinks in Redmine wiki!

Hi. I've put the functionality into the plugin for those interested in the backlinks feature:


In fact it's rewritten code above (we've used a modified version of the patch in previous versions of Redmine, but it was removed after upgrade) with possibility to show backlinks on every wiki page without macro call.

I would also love to have the possibility to search for backlinks in a subtree of a wiki.
