Yeah, the old way of checking for attachments was to either see if  
there is a "/" in the name somewhere, or instanceof Attachment. Both  
fail :-)

getAttachmentInfo() is more or less obsolete anyway - getPage() should  
take care of it.

That is a good question.  I think we should make "remove default  
spacename" an user setting, and have it on for 3.0, and then off once  
we actually have wikispaces support (it looks to me that we might want  
to drop that from 3.0 and move it to 3.1).  I'm not sure whether  
people expect their URLs to change (even though references won't break  
since we always go back to the default space).

BTW, is "Main" a good name for the default space?

We're already using a custom encoder in TextUtil, so patching it to  
support colons should be pretty trivial.
