I've run across the problem where I wanted to modify the appearance of Special:Recentchanges. Specifically, some of the lines should include another link. After looking through the code, I discovered this is impossible, as SpecialRecentchanges is somewhat static.
I therefore propose the addition of some more Hooks in SpecialRecentchanges.php. Most importantly at line 262 in, in the loop that creates the recentChangesLine. The loop could also be added in ChangesList in the function recentChangesLine.
If there is a chance that this would be integrated into MediaWiki, I would also write and upload a patch. Please let me know what you think.
I think things may proceed faster if you submit a patch first and expect the comments afterwards.
Changed component to "RecentChanges"
Are you referring to the ability for software to modify it (e.g. via a hook), or for a user to modify it (e.g. via an interface message or template).
