Okay, now that we've finally caved to the users' image-linking desires, could we
use a more obvious syntax for the simple case of one image = one link? This can
be optional, if we think anyone objects to using images to link to pages, but
there's no sense in forcing people to use some convoluted but powerful imagemap
syntax to get a perfectly obvious effect. And it should probably be in core
code, for simplicity if nothing else (the something else being that this is
probably among the top ten requests in #mediawiki).
For simplicity, it might be best to allow only inline images to be linked, at
least at first, because that way we can just let the <a> wrap the image. Stuff
stuck in divs should be dealt with too at some point, but that will be more
tricky because you need to stick the <a> in the middle around the <img> proper
(and what should happen in the case of captions is perhaps not immediately
obvious, although I suppose it should just link the image and nothing else).
I was JUST about to log this request...
Same syntax and everything. :)
How would one handle it currently, as a workaround?

Using the ImageMap extension.
