There currently is a hard limit of 500 links being shown.
Pages like the above with many many links will have a
truncated list.

Have to transform SpecialWhatlinkshere.php to use the
QueryPage class for rendering.

Bumped priority to normal.

Returning to enhancement and closing as INVALID.

Whatlinkshere shows a tree structure as it follows a couple levels of redirects, and 
QueryPage is not designed for this, so it doesn't make a lot of sense to try to shove it 
into the QueryPage layout.

The stated reason _for_ converting it is to add a limit pager, but it's already got one in
