The Go button is currently namespace-oblivious, requiring explicit prefixes for
all but the main namespace. I propose a new namespace property allowing the Go
button to prepend namespace prefixes to queries. For example, were this
property set for an "Author:" namespace on the English Wikisource, queries for
"William Shakespeare" could Go to Author:William Shakespeare instead of, as now,
"No page with that title exists".
Pending on completion of namespace manager merge.
This was added in r53600 and r53618, the config variable is $wgSecondaryGoNamespaces.
The change was unfortunately reverted in r55456. Reopening...
