In Parser.php, the magicRFC() function cleverly converts text like "RFC 1149"
into an external link. Unfortunately, this breaks wikilinks to RFCs like [[RFC

seems to be a somewhat esoteric case. For Wikipedia, the generally accepted
style is to put external links at the end of an article, rather than embedding
them within the article. If someone wants to link to the full text of an RFC, I

I fixed it in HEAD. Will be made available in version 1.4
Now backported to 1.3.
[[RFC 822]] links work, but RFC 822 doesn't work any more.
Fixed in HEAD, and I added some parser test cases for magic RFC links. In 1.3
everything appears to work as well.
